Constructing a dramatic series around plastic surgery -- ripe as that backdrop is for sex, nudity and beautiful people awash in opulence -- is such a no-brainer for TV it's a wonder pay cable or Aaron Spelling didn't get there first. Which is why "Nip/Tuck" -- a provocative but at times off-putting new show -- doesn't do itself a favor by pressing considerably further, tacking on the more obvious trappings of violence, torture and a marriage so troubled it could qualify for "Jerry Springer."

This year's shark-attack model - the Australian 3D flick "Bait" - seeks a little feeding-frenzy variation, so instead of roaming the high seas, it brings its 12-foot chomper inland, courtesy of a tsunami. On a handsome stretch of touristy beach, monster waves crush hundreds of people, but the only death toll of interest to "Bait" relates to a flooded underground grocery store and its trapped survivors - various hottie twentysomethings and older authority types. Director Kimble Rendall serves up a particularly hungry, vicious and Sea World-agile Great White, plus all the limb-separating gore effects you can handle.

When "Nip/Tuck" made its debut in 2003, it broke cable-viewing records and instantly distinguished itself with its stylized look, tongue-in-cheek tone, gorgeous stars and fresh take on America's obsession with beauty and youth. Those qualities earned it a Golden Globe for best drama, critical acclaim and water-cooler buzz that lasted for most of its first four seasons.

Finally, the "Nip/Tuck" boys are where they belong -- L.A., the cosmic center of cosmetic surgery. Season 3 opens Tuesday with Drs. Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) languishing in their new Beverly Hills digs, where no one seems to care about their Miami exploits. Big, crazy pond, little-bitty fish.

How can it be possible that "Nip/Tuck" turns five this year? FX's Golden Globe-winning drama is giving itself a complete makeover this year, moving doctors McNamara and Troy from South Beach to the 90210. La-La-Land will affect the baddest boys of the scalpel by reversing the pecking order, creator Ryan Murphy told reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Assn.'s media tour gathering at the Beverly Hilton.

The third season of FX's "Nip/Tuck" won't begin airing until the fall, but one of last season's cliffhangers has been resolved: Creator Ryan Murphy has agreed to stay with the edgy plastic surgery drama for two more seasons. Despite the show's success -- it was the No. 1 original basic cable show among the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic group -- Murphy had said in October that he might have to leave to make time to direct his first feature film.

AT first glance, this is not an unusual "Nip/Tuck" scene: former porn star Kimber and perpetually troubled Matt, young and fit sitting inside a hot, steamy sauna, ridding their bodies of poisons. But, as Kimber (Kelly Carlson) tells the impressionable Matt (John Hensley) in the episode that airs Tuesday, this is a different kind of sweating and cleansing.
