Underdeveloped cheekbones are also referred as “low cheekbones.” The effect of this is that the face doesn’t look sharp and chiseled. 
This doesn’t necessarily undermine a person’s attractiveness.

Some celebrity examples might include: Renee Zellweger, David Schwimmer and Nas.

Some people may want to correct this issue with surgical cheek implants. It is also possible to achieve higher looking cheekbones through a non-surgical cheeklift.

It means that the patient does not have prominent cheek bones.  The opposite of Chaleze Therrion.  This can often be changed with cheek implants.
