Nip/Tuck is an American drama series created by Ryan Murphy, which aired on FX in the United States between July 18, 2003 and March 3, 2010. The series focuses on McNamara/Troy, a controversial plastic surgery practice, and especially its founders, Sean McNamara and Christian Troy. Each episode involves the plastic surgeries of one or more patients, most of which appear for more popular procedures such as breast lifts as well as more bizarre procedures such as external appearance disease removals that were never as well known before. It also features the tumultuous personal lives of its main cast. The show began in July 22, 2003, and concluded on March 3, 2010, with the 100th episode. While the show was initially set in Miami, at the end of the fourth season it was relocated to Los Angeles and many of the characters have followed along. The show has earned 45 award nominations, winning one Golden Globe and one Emmy Award. Series creator Ryan Murphy has said that the medical cases on the show are "100 percent based on fact".
