    "Nip/Tuck," FX's fictional plastic surgery drama, received a nod from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association when it was nominated for the 61st annual Golden Globe in the Best Drama Series category.

    However, members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), along with many television viewers, have criticized the program, which uses violence, sex, and graphically unrealistic portrayals of plastic surgery to boost ratings, said plastic surgeon Robert Bernard, M.D., of White Plains, N.Y., and president of the 2,100-member ASAPS.

    "Yes, this is an obviously fictional portrayal of plastic surgery, but nevertheless, it is most disturbing to see cosmetic surgery patients, and women in particular, demeaned in this manner," he said.
