Season 5

Dr. Sean McNamara (series star Dylan Walsh) and Dr. Christian Troy (series star Julian McMahon), two plastic surgeons, close friends and business partners who own an overwhelmingly successful plastic surgery practice, attempt to bring inner peace and visceral contentment to their patients through external cosmetic procedures.

Although their clients aspire to cover up their pain, it is the surgeons who truly wear the masks of anguish and unhappiness, sadness and disillusionment.

For more than two decades, they have shared a love for the same woman, Julia McNamara (series star Joely Richardson), who despite being married to Sean, has loved both men.

And at midlife, the doctors question the prosperity that has brought them so much - and has offered so little.

Following his divorce from Julia, who is now living in New York with her two younger children, Sean sold his half of McNamara/Troy and departed Miami for Los Angeles.

Having ended his engagement, Christian soon followed, thus relocating McNamara/Troy to the West Coast. Dr. Liz Cruz (series star Roma Maffia) also joins the new McNamara/Troy for a fresh start, as she recovers physically and emotionally from past loves.

And Matt McNamara (series star John Hensley) and Kimber Henry (series star Kelly Carlson) have gotten married and now have a baby daughter.

In a city where they are professionally unknown, and where residents yearn for fame, Sean and Christian struggle for success.

In the fifth season premiere, Sean and Christian settle into their new plastic surgery practice in Beverly Hills and struggle to build it from the ground up.

New opportunities arise after they meet a slick Hollywood publicist who offers to help raise their reputation through the media rather than via their surgical abilities.

Recurring guest star Oliver Platt appears as Freddy Prune, recurring guest star Bradley Cooper appears as Aidan Stone, guest star Craig Bierko appears as Bob Easton, guest star Daphne Zuniga appears as Carly Summers, recurring guest star Jennifer Coolidge appears as Candy Richards, recurring guest star Paula Marshall appears as Kate Tinsley, guest star Tia Carrere appears as Mistress Dark Pain and recurring guest star Lauren Hutton appears as Fiona McNeil.
