UAB patients will share their success of a healthier lifestyle through weight-loss surgery during the annual UAB Hospital Bariatric Surgery Services Fashion Show at 6 p.m. Nov. 25 in the Margaret Cameron Spain Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
Patients participating in the event are one to five years post-operative, and each participant has lost 50-250 pounds since their surgery. The event will highlight the hardships, trials and commitments made by the participants to follow the orders of the program and discuss how they continue to thrive today.
The fashion show will feature three scenes — casual, dress wear and a new wedding scene, which will highlight a patient who wore a size 26 before weight loss and now wears a size four dress.
UAB’s Bariatric Surgery Services is the first American College of Surgeons Level 1 Bariatric Surgery Center in Alabama, an accreditation that demonstrates its commitment to delivering the highest quality of care for its patients. Request an information packet online at www.uabmedicine.org.
