If one hypertrophies the masseter muscle and temporalis -- both muscle groups that run underneath the zygomatic process/arch bone that rests and makes up the side of the human face and connects to the back of the skull -- can the bone or will the bone widen accordingly?

As I understand it bones constantly remodel. If the muscle underneath the bone grows big enough, will the bone be forced to grow to accommodate the extra needed space in the zygomatic process?
