DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - What better way to strut your stuff than at a show with a purpose?!

The 9th annual walk this weigh fashion show was held Tuesday.

This unique fashion show is held every year to celebrate patients post Bariatric surgery and the success they have had in their weight loss journeys.

Each of the 30 patients have made dramatic transformations and between them 3000 pounds were lost.

One surgeon says, seeing his patients smile makes it all worth while.

"For most of the doctors in our practice.. this is vital to what we do.. and one of the favorite parts of our practice seeing the patients success just makes what we are doing worthwhile and we just wanted to have a way to give back to them a little bit so they could be celebrated and be spoiled for how well they have done." --DR. BRADLEY BARKER, SURGEON
