Nip/Tuck is an American medical drama created by Ryan Murphy, which aired on FX in the United States between 2003 and 2010. The series focuses on "McNamara/Troy", a plastic surgery practice, and follows its founders, Dr. Sean McNamara and Dr. Christian Troy (portrayed by Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon respectively). Each episode typically involves the cosmetic procedures of one or more patients, and also features the personal and professional lives of its main cast.

The show began in the Summer of 2003, and concluded with the sixth season in Spring 2010. While the show was initially set in Miami, at the end of the fourth season the practice was relocated to Los Angeles and many of the characters have followed. The fifth season premiered on October 30, 2007, though production was affected by the 2007 Writers Strike. Accordingly, the second half of the fifth season was not screened until January 6, 2009 in the U.S.

The series ran for 100 episodes, concluding with the series finale on March 3, 2010. With the exception of the pilot, each episode is named after the character(s) that are scheduled to have plastic surgery.
