Beauty isn't all it's cracked up to be. Straight-laced plastic surgeon Sean McNamara and his unabashedly narcissistic business partner Christian Troy manage one of Miami's hottest cosmetic surgery practices. As the duo expand their lucrative business, their complicated and intertwined friendship is put to the test: Sean's dysfunctional family, including his adulterous wife and rebellious teenage son, forces him to reexamine his perfect fantasy life, while Christian's sexual addiction and questionable morals put him at odds with those closest to him. From the beautiful to the utterly bizarre, Nip/Tuck presents an unflinching and uncensored look at the plastic surgery industry and the outrageous people who make it tick.
