Set in sexy South Beach, Miami, "Nip/Tuck" cuts beneath the surface of the superficial world of plastic surgery, revealing the complexities and fragile nature of patients trying to mask their psychological flaws through cosmetic enhancement. Self-confident plastic surgeon Dr. Christian Troy (series star Julian McMahon) enjoys all the perks of the successful and growing practice that he has shared with his best friend, Dr. Sean McNamara (series star Dylan Walsh), since they graduated from medical school. Dr. Liz Cruz (series star Roma Maffia) serves as the anaesthesiologist.
Although Christian sometimes still uses wealth and women to satisfy his evolving needs, years of selling a phony image have taken a more significant toll on Sean, threatening to ruin his relationship with his wife, Julia (series star Joely Richardson), and children, 17-year-old Matt (series star John Hensley) and 8-year-old Annie (recurring guest star Kelsey Lynn Batelaan).
