The series focuses upon the relationship between Sean and Christian, friends since college and partners in a successful plastic surgery medical practice. Sadly, their lives are far from happy: Sean's marriage to Julia, who dropped out of medical school after becoming pregnant (with Christian's child, due to a one-night stand) is strained at best. Their "oldest" son Matt (an 18-year-old played by an [[DawsonCasting actor in his late twenties]]) is a complete screw-up of epic proportions. Matt's crazy "antics" include trying to cut off his penis's foreskin by himself, seducing his girlfriend's lesbian lover, running over a young girl and disfiguring her as a result, sleeping with a 30+ year old woman who turns out to be transsexual, beating up another transsexual (who later has her friends beat Matt up and piss on him afterwards), dating a Neo-Nazi girl, doing crystal meth and becoming a Scientologist while being married to his real dad Christian's ex-fiancée, porn star Kimber Henry, and fathering a daughter with her, almost starring in gay porn because he can't afford baby food, burning himself while "cooking up" drugs, dating a horribly disfigured woman and then cruelly dumping her when she won't marry him, and becoming an armed robber while dressed like a mime.

* BrokenPedestal: Sean's old teacher, Dr. Grayson, shows up as a pathetic alcoholic performing underground surgery on transsexuals in a filthy apartment.

* MrsRobinson: The manipulative Ava Moore was a sexual predator who tended to go for partners who were significantly younger than her or even underaged. These include [[TeacherStudentRomance one of her students as a life coach]] (Matt) and [[ParentalIncest her own son]] (Adrian). The reason for this is that [[spoiler:Ava is a male-to-female {{transsexual}} with an incomplete vaginal cavity, and she hoped that inexperienced men wouldn't be able to tell the difference.]]

* {{Transgender}}: The series seems to have a bit of a fascination with transsexuality (understandably, as the show is largely concerned with sex and plastic surgery); the most notable of these is Ava Moore (played by Famke Janssen), whom main character Christian calls "the goddamn Hope Diamond of transsexuals." They actually track down the surgeon responsible for Ava's near-flawless transformation, who agreed to do it because he was heterosexual and [[TransEqualsGay she was gay and in love with him]].

** Quite a few minor characters that impacted the story are cast aside with little explanation why. What happened to Cara Fitzgerald after she was raped by Matt's friend? What became of the transsexual Sofia Lopez? What happened to the neo-nazi Ariel [[spoiler: after her father was murdered by Cherry?]] Speaking of which, where did Cherry run off to? What became of Aidan Stone after he broke his neck trying to suck his own penis? What happened to Mike Hamoui after [[spoiler: Kimber killed herself by jumping off his yacht?]] The list goes on and on...

Added DiffLines:

* CunningLinguist: Christian speaks fluent Spanish (as seen in a scene where he's interviewing a patient). No doubt necessary in a city like Miami, which has a huge Hispanic population.
