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.

We American's "expect" our stars to stay as they were when we began to watch them. Imagine the shock when we saw arrest pictures of Gary Busey and Nick Nolte. They were great looking guys back in the day. Women are more vain than the men sad to say. That's why the weight loss world makes billions off of us. It's "expected" that we look at age 70 like we did we were 21. It's all in the way society looks at us or make us look. Pretty pathetic but true. Just as to our young women that big breasts are important to make them become someone. I've had huge breasts all from age 9, home grown breasts no plastic and nothing but pure heck on the back and shoulders.
Society should instill the more important things in life like ... love, honesty, integrity, religion, helping your fellow person, devotion, giving time to your family and friends. And quit glorifying in the news losers like drug addicts, rapists, murderers, gang bangers, and people who put plastic surgery as "important" to succeed.Speaking of "ugly" I'm so sick and tired of wanting to watch some "good news" and turning on the tv and seeing the cowardly lion face of Drew Peterson.
Come on Media...find something worth our while!

at least us Southern brothers and sisters simply know how to care for ourselves and most of us never have to be desperate enough , insecure or vain enough to put foreign crap in our bodies. i am 54 , three children and five grandchildren and look almost as good as i did before they were all born, that is nothing but taking care of what the good Lord gave you and not disrespecting it. Good luck west coast get back out in the sun !!!!!!!!!!!!

That explains how uncomfortable Priscilla looked on the show, She has that bloated stone faced look. I hope her problem can be recitfied. Once again, this brings up the important fact to research any doctor that you come in contact with.
Some errors are not solved with an apology. And the one word you do not want to hear from your doctor is " Ooops !!!"

Vanity! Vanity! Vanity! That is all that is involved here. These women named are not stars, they are wives and widows of stars. They do not do this because it is their bread and butter, they do it for vanity sake! They saw this as a quick fix to what they saw as a problem. Face it ladies!!! you get older!!! I see aging as better than the alternative.

At 53 I have greying hair but no wrinkles (thanks to oily skin). I have thin lips and have no intention of trying to make them look like a baboons backside. What do they think is sexy about this? It is freaky. People born with fuller lips look natural, but you can spot a lip job a mile away.

Give it up ladies, if you loose your man because you age, he was not much of a man to begin with!! Have confidence in yourself and don't try to look 16 forever!

Truth be told    

I do not feel sorry for any of these fools who do this crap. Everyone is going to get old and die, trying to look twenty when you are fifty is nonsense. I would not want a woman with fake lips, breasts, hair, and butt. These women are not real they are silicone filled wanna be barbie dolls. They all will eventually look worse than they would have and some look like a hot pile of stew now. It used to be that music and movie stars would exit stage left gracefully, now they get shot up with any and everything and keep comming back. Ego and being in love with yourself when others know you are done, priceless.

I HAD TO TURN OFF DANCING WITH THE STARS LAST NIGHT,FIRST OF ALL IT WAS PRETTY BORING. YOU HAVE ALOT OF NOTHING, BUT D STARS THINKING NOW THEY CAN MAKE IT.
SECOND OF ALL PRICILLA PRESLEY LOOKS "HORRIBLE". HER LIPS LOOK LIKE CLARA BOW'S(IF YOU DON'T REMEMBER HER SHE WAS THE IT GIRL IN THE 20'S AND NO I WASAN'T BORN YET) IF YOU LOOK ON THE LEFT SIDE OF HER FACE IT LOOKS LUMPY. THE HAIR IS SO SILLY ON A 62 YR. OLD WOMAN,MY GOD HOW SCARED IS SHE OF AGING AND LOSSING THE PRESLEY NAME?????? SHE SOUNDS DOWNRIGHT DUMB. THE CRAWLING ON THE FLOOR THING REALLY TOOK THE CAKE.
I'M 4 YRS. OLDER THEN HER,NEVER HAD PLASTIC SURGERY AND AM TAKEN FOR LATE 40'S..SHE LOOKS LIKE THEY USED A PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE ON HER FACE.
GROW UP CILLA AND ACT LIKE A CONFIDANTE WOMAN, NOT A SCARY OLD LADY LOOKING TO GO BACK TO HER 30'S.
A GRANDMOTHER AND PROUD OF IT!! AND I CAN DANCE TOO LOL!!
