Patient II: This is a 59-year-old patient with folds of skin in the upper third of the upper arm, extending to the axilla.
The "fish-mouth technique" was used for this patient, i. e., the incision was only in the axilla and the upper third of the upper arm. This results in a shorter operation time and less scarring.
Patient II: Twelve Months After the Operation
After eliminating the folds, the volume was also reduced. The incision in the axilla and the upper medial part of the upper arm is not visible.
