Descriptions of superficial anatomic landmarks for the identification of the zygomatic branches of the facial nerve, and their relevance for plastic surgery, are lacking in the literature. This paper provides such a description and discusses its relevance to facial surgery. Materials and methods: Sixty-six specimens, including the parotid region, from 33 adult cadavers were dissected and studied. All specimens were fixed in formaldehyde, and the superficial tissues were removed and the zygomatic branches of the facial nerve, the parotid gland, the tragus and the lateral palpebral commissure were identified. The vertical and horizontal relationships were recorded and analyzed. Results and conclusions: A total of
