Nip Tuck Anyone?



The other day, I was talking to LJ about our favourite TV programs and Nip Tuck came up. If you don't already know, I'm a huge fan of this drama, which was recommended by another friend. Centering around two super hot doctors who are also best friends, this disturbingly intriguing drama sees Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) as two good-looking plastic surgeons often bombarded with some ridiculous cosmetic surgery demands. With a shared practice aptly named McNamara-Troy, these two best friends also happen to be in (and sometimes out) of love with the same woman, Julia (Joely Richardson).

My
favourite Nip Tuck character is definitely Sean. Though not as charming as the alluring Troy, Sean appeals to me with his sense of kindness and gentle ways, which makes him just as sexy and dashing as Christian! My least favourite character has to be Julia. Forever lost in he own world, she continues searching herself for true happiness, but somehow comes off as a pathetically sad, depressing ex-wife, who doesn't know what she wants in life or love!

Anyway, I'm currently watching Season 5 and am just as hooked on it as I was when I first watched Season 1. This season, we see Sean and Christian starting a new practice in California. Divorced from Julia, Sean moves on to start anew. We still see Sean devoted to his passion as a top plastic surgeon while the more playful Christian tends to flock towards his customary need for women, fame and glory.

As usual, there are still lots of gory moments in Nip Tuck season 5. This is when I usually look away for I am definitely not one for blood. The sight of dark red blood gushing out freely during one of the many Breast Enlargement moments in Nip Tuck is too much for my eyes to take! Sometimes I wonder at the lengths and trouble people would go to in the name of beauty. Apparently, the first cosmetic surgery took place 4,000 years ago, which means people were already placing importance on vanity and physical appearance since back then!


Today, there are many valid medical professionals providing cosmetic surgery services such as MYA Cosmetic Surgery, which offers a full range of surgical and non-surgical procedures together with competitive finance packages and consultation centres. With 25 years of cosmetic surgery experience and
a comprehensive aftercare package for its patients, they guarantee you the highest level of professionalism by extremely knowledgeable staff.

As tempting as it sounds to be under the knife of professional talents like MYA and emerge rejuvenated, younger and perkier, I think cosmetic surgery is not for me. I still much prefer to play the role of a safe albeit plain bystander, simply viewing and not experiencing the wonders of cosmetic surgery as shown on TV. The thought of me bleeding and lying unconscious on the operating table in real life, definitely sends shivers up my spine! Plus, if anyone were to be performing any cosmetic surgery on me, I'd rather be in the safe, secure hands of handsome Dr. McNamara! Until then, I'll pass. ;)

Lol GP! I'm sure if you were to go for consultation, Sean would say.. there's nothing to change GP! You're perfection!...

Anyway, you know my preference is for Christian Troy, the alluring doctor. He may be naughty but aren't those the best kind! lolzzzz!!!

LadyJava February 15, 2008 1:46 PM

Yes, Portia is Ellen's gf! I liked her in Arrested Development, though she is getting skinnier by the day! ;)

Farah Deen February 15, 2008 1:51 PM

Nip tuck totally sounds inviting! while at that, i dont mind liposuction too!!!! LOL LOL but i know they cost like anything! some wishes will remain wishes forever....so I say...LOL

Mariuca February 15, 2008 1:54 PM

Lolz..Farah, I also sometimes wonder if liposuction will be the end of my diet days! But I hear it's painful too, oh well...just have to lose weight the old-fashion way I guess, more dieting for me then! :):):)

LadyJava February 15, 2008 1:56 PM

Farah.. if you serious doing lipo.. must make sure Dr Christian Troy does yours ok... he's marvelous!!

J@n!ce February 15, 2008 1:56 PM

Mariuca February 15, 2008 2:14 PM

Mariuca February 15, 2008 2:15 PM

Hey Janice, oh the skilled docs are everywhere, but are they as good looking as the ones on Nip Tuck? He he he!! ;)

LadyJava February 15, 2008 2:16 PM

Mariuca February 15, 2008 2:20 PM

LadyJava February 15, 2008 2:22 PM

GP..no worries.. Sean is cute too in his own special way...it's just that the nottier a guy is, the more appealing he gets kan?? heheeh

Mariuca February 15, 2008 2:41 PM

That's true LJ, bad boys are the worst kind sometimes, can't resist them even though they give u heartpain! ;)

THE NAFASG TEAM February 15, 2008 3:42 PM

We have heard of the show but don't really follow up with it. After all, cosmetic surgery is definitely not for us either. We love ourselves the way we look like right now. And we're happy! Hehehe. =)

Baby Mits February 15, 2008 3:49 PM

I LOVE nip tuck! although season 4 got a bit too silly. I am in the middle of downloading season 5 :)

Got to finish my desperate housewives first (I am still stuck at season 3!!) before I move onto nip tuck season 5

Mariuca February 15, 2008 4:02 PM

NAFA, it's a wonderful show if u don't mind all the blood he he he..but seriously, it's very interesting too. Glad to hear you love yourself the way you are, now if only ul show us more pics of NAFA on ur blog! Lolz... ;)

Mariuca February 15, 2008 4:03 PM

Hola Baby Mits, welcome to Mariuca's blog! Wow, I love DH too, you really must DL faster so u can catch up with the latest seasons lolz...The current DH is SUPERB I must say! :):):)

Jean Chia February 15, 2008 4:48 PM

is it on astro? i hardly watch tv nowadays except for the 8.30pm - 10.30pm on Wah Lai Toi.. :D But if this Sean is really so handsome, why not? hehe.. when is it aired?

i agreed with you. cosmetic surgery is not for me too! why want to change yourselves? it is not that we are extremely fat that it is unhealthy. we must learn to love ourselves.

once, i watched the cosmetic surgery on astro and the lady was in pain for weeks. it is just not my type.

Mariuca February 15, 2008 9:17 PM

Jean! Yay, you're here again! :)

Oh yeah, I like watching all those makeover shows too, and the patients do look like they're in a lot of pain after each surgery! Anyway, I watch my Nip Tuck on dvd la Jean, don't think it's showing on 8TV anymore! :):):)

bokjae February 16, 2008 12:20 AM

Farah Deen February 16, 2008 1:48 PM

GP, i guess so too...liposuction is damn expensive...but you know, if i were that rich (millionaire?) I would! and forget dieting! damn, it's so hard to diet sometimes....:( but my new year resolution is to be thin and trim! LOL mcm impossible je!!!!!!

Mariuca February 17, 2008 12:15 AM

Lol!! Farah, my resolusi is to lose some weight too, am dieting on and off so of coz not losing any weight! Anyway, it's not impossible, it's all a matter of willpower, which I am lacking of! ;)
