This question relates to:
French lesson "Using mon, ma, mes, etc with parts of the body (possessive adjectives)"

As the lesson specifies, you use the personal pronoun also when special emphasis is put on the body part. I assume that's the case in the sentence you quote. However, without knowing the context that's impossible to tell.

As the lesson specifies, you use the personal pronoun alao when special emphasis is put on the body part. I assume that's the case in the sentence you quote. However, without knowing the context that's impossible to tell.
