請問為什麼nip/tuck就代表整形醫師呢?

看到美國影集nip/tuck在演整形醫師的故事(我知道台灣有演)

但在此影集撥出之前,美國就稱整形醫師為nip/tuck

請問有何意義嗎?為什麼他代表著整形醫師的意思呢?

謝謝

    Nipping and tucking are metaphorical terms used in the plastic surgery profession to describe what a surgeon does.

    To best understand what it means, it's best to define each of the two terms:

    Nip...to remove excess skin by "snipping" it off.

    Tuck...to draw or pull together...like in a face lift where two areas of skin are pulled together and then sutured to remove wrinkles by the resulting tightness of the skin.

    So, in the world of plastic surgery, what they do can be described as using a method called "Nip and Tuck", (nipping and tucking the skin in order to remove excess or wrinkled skin as the result of aging or extreme weight loss).
