Priscilla Presley

Victim of Phony

Cosmetic Doc

3/25/2008 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Priscilla Presley is the victim of a botched cosmetic procedure. What's worse -- it was at the hands of a gigolo who was sent to prison for perpetrating an injectable scam on Hollywood's elite.

Priscilla Pressley, Dr. Serrano
Priscilla, whose face looks ... strange on "Dancing with the Stars," went to Dr. Daniel Serrano around 2003. Serrano was a good-looking doc from Argentina who hooked into Hollywood's social A-list and started giving them what he claimed were miracle injections that worked better than Botox.

In fact, Serrano was injecting industrial, low-grade silicone similar to what's used to lubricate auto parts in Argentina into the faces of these women. Several women, including Shawn King, Larry's wife, and Diane Richie, Lionel's wife at the time, held injection parties in their homes, with Serrano needling them with the non-FDA approved drug that he had smuggled in to the U.S. Shawn King has said the injections created a lump in her lip that made it difficult to speak and drink liquids. Serrano charged between $300 and $500 a pop.

But wait, it gets worse. Serrano wasn't even a licensed doc in the U.S. The injections caused lumps, paralysis and holes in the faces of some of the women (and some men) he injected.

Serrano, who was nicknamed Dr. Jiffy Lube, was indicted by the Feds for smuggling drugs, and the conspiracy and use of unapproved drugs. He was convicted, and last week he was released and is currently being investigated by federal immigration officials and could be deported.

BTW, Diane Richie was also indicted as an accomplice. She pled out and was placed on probation.

As for Priscilla -- who had no idea she was being injected with silicone -- we're told she's undergoing corrective work.

Sick and tired of seeing this update everytime I refresh this site, so I'll say what's on everyone's mind. We have our own modern day elephant woman thanks to botched plastic surgery. We'll participate in the auction of her bones in fifty years so let's get over this already and get the latest gossip. Geeezzzz.................EEEEEE, that sounded like so Sonny Bono.

i guess just because someone is rich and famous doesn't make them more intelligent. The idea of having yourself injected with something at a party is totaly outrageous and dumb. Silicone injecting parties have been going on for a long time in the transexual community, often with tragic results.

I thought she had looked "odd" for some time. It is so sad that the rich and famous continue to do this to themselves. She used to be so pretty, Look at Melanie Griffin , Lisa Rinna etc. If Cher has had anything done, they need to go see her doc. I am still voting for Pricilla on the Stars, she is very brave.

All I can say is she looks unquestionably “odd” . . . . She is around 62yrs or 63yrs and to be able to get out there and dance that good, I think that is just great. But as far as her face goes it is extremely frozen and oddly, overly smooth and those strange cheeks. . . Unfortunately, she now has a cadaver like look. Doesn’t she have someone that will tell her that she’s gone to far and to stop and do no more? I thought doctors took oaths to “Do No Harm”

No one deserves to be deliberately botched like this. I saw a similar story on THS about a woman who was injecting her clients with this stuff and it's practically impossible to correct because it was not intended for use in the human body. Why can't these women just age gracefully? These women would still be pretty, older women if they would just leave their faces alone.

What a shame; what an idiotic blunder! Who in the world would let anyone inject something into their bodies without first checking credentials and questioning what the solution is, what the short term/long term effects are, and wanting before/after shots of previous patients????? Sure lets us know the vanity levels and desperation levels of some women and men! As bad as silicone is, to allow utility grade to be injected; WOW! Good luck to their future health and reconstruction.

My birthday is next week and I will be a proud 56 years of age. I lived in Beverly Hills and even shopped at Priscilla's shop. I know what is takes to look wonderful in LA. But I will never go under the knife or allow anyone to put something in my body with promise's of the fountain of youth. Ladies, age with grace that too can be beautiful. If you took excellant care of your skin when you were younger you will not have any problems I know I don't.

Seems the #1 weird result is a Jay Leno chin - almost every one of the "botched" pictures have this huge chin they didn't have before. Sad. Kenny Roigers pulled his face way too tight, but left his hair white!! Most people would leave their face alone and dye their hair!! Getting old beats the HELL out of the alternative - which is dying young!! Everything in life is a matter of perspective.
