* ACupAngst: Well, yes, there are several characters who have gotten breast implants on the show due to not liking their old ones, but it didn't happen as often as you might think for a show that focused on plastic surgery. Primarily because it's such a common procedure for the two main characters, and more bizarre cases were usually the subject of the week.

* DCupDistress:
** There's a subversion in the episode [[GagBoobs Jenny Juggs]], where title character has incredibly huge breasts that she can even use as [[ImprobableWeaponUser weapons]], knocking out the protagonist and breaking a pumpkin with them. Her breasts have caused her a lot of self-esteem issues, [[YouAreWhatYouHate not helped by the fact that she's a stripper]]. She is finally convinced by the protagonist to get a breast reduction bringing her to a C-cup but ends up getting upset anyway because she [[ACupAngst thinks her breasts are too small]].
** Another subversion in an early episode where the patient of the week is a woman who had had incredibly large breast implants, then wants them reduced again. It turns out that she's actually working for a drug dealer who is using the implants to smuggle his product into the country.

Added DiffLines:

* EverybodyHasLotsOfSex: The show featured numerous sex-focused plots. Pretty much every character has either had sex, an affair, a threesome, or a one-night stand at least once onscreen. Though Christian takes the cake due to being TheCasanova. Numerous kinks, some more sane than others, were also depicted.

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Sean and ChristianChristian have been best friends and colleagues since college, and Christian is godfather to Sean's children. The show does actually explore the possibility of Christian having repressed homosexual feelings for Sean when he starts having [[HomoeroticDream dreams about them being lovers]], but they both conclude it doesn't really mean anything.

* ILoveTheDead : Christian is accused of this when he tries to obtain a Jane Doe from the morgue. The clerk on duty tells an anecdote about a man who wanted to get his freak on with his dead lover's corpse...so she wouldn't criticize him.

** There's a real example that's even more disgusting than usual where a lonely funeral worker assembles a Frankenstein-esque body from various stolen body parts, including his dead sister's head. He then proceeds to have sex with it.

In the episode "Willow Banks", a woman wants to look ordinary because she feels her beauty is a curse. She gets what she [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor wished for]] in a [[spoiler: car accident]] and then realizes that, no matter how much she romanticizes the ugly for being liked for who they are, or how "hard" it is to be beautiful, anything less is at least ten times worse.
** Christian Troy is devilishly handsome [[TheCasanova Casanova]], but he's stricly heterosexual. He's gotten [[IncompatibleOrientation unwanted advances from more than one man]], which he usually reacts to either with disgust or in one instance a punch to the face. Played for laughs when he agrees to be featured in ''Playgirl'' in the hopes that it will draw in more female clients, not knowing the usual readership of the magazine.

Added DiffLines:

* IJustWantToBeBeautiful: Pretty much the whole point of the show. The main characters are two plastic surgeons, and pretty much all of their patients are shown living more fulfilling lives after their surgeries. Although it's not just purely minor imperfections that people gripe about, they also do pro bono procedures on severely disfigured individuals. But of course, it's also shown as an inherently obsessive pursuit.

* ChocolateBaby: Christian assumes that the baby Gina is carrying is his, which she claims is true. Big shock when the baby is born and he is black. Very black. Gina, as a sex addict, has had countless different partners. It evolves into a protracted legal battle when Gina doesn't want to share custody with Christian (since he's not the real father), but then Christian gets in touch with the biological father so they can have Gina declared unfit as a parent. The father, who is a middle-aged, married man, admits that while he regrets the affair, he and his wife have decided to raise the child by themselves. The judge ultimately accords them custody and cuts out both Gina and Christian.
