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.

Priscilla has looked like a mutated clown for quite some time now. She should have just left her face alone. Idiot.

Suffer in the name of VANITY. Use toxins, plastics, silicone and drugs to fake your way to popularity. You can't get any shallower than the skin on your face.

I'm all for topical injections, etc. but PP looked a bit scary sitting in the audience while the men performed on DWTS. Kinda robotic.

Priscilla always was beautiful. What a shame she had to have cosmetic surgery.She could have aged gracefully.Now it seems,that she can't hardly talk right.It makes a person feel uncomfortable for her,when she is talking.

Is it just me or is that Donatella Versace skank one of the ugliest women you have ever seen. If it weren't for all of the $$$ she has she wouldn't get laid at "last call" and the local bar.

That's what happens when people mess with mother nature. It's natural to get gray hair and wrinkles as you age......women can be just as beautiful by aging naturally. We weren't meant to have our skin stretched and tacked and our stomachs stapled to lose weight. For goodness sake....society needs to stop putting unrealistic expectations on women (and men)'re not supposed to look like a Barbie Doll your whole life. If women would just learn to accept themselves and have a "to hell with what anyone else thinks" attitude, then maybe younger girls/society will start admiring them and aging gracefully will become the new "norm". I admire those kinds of women far more than the ones who are constantly going under the knife. Learn to love yourselves, ladies --- you're fine just the way you are!! The kind of person that you are on the inside is all that counts.

Thank you for letting us know this - this is first I've heard of this. Priscilla has always been very beautiful - this certainly explains alot. I sure hope she can get this fixed and be able to smile again of luck to you Priscilla!

Priscilla Presley needs to do somethng with her hair. As much money as she has, at least get a good colorist. Maybe if she softened it up it would take away from the damage to her face.

Why, why in God's name do these people do this to themselves? The vanity in America is insane and embarrassing. The "hell" of growing older.....ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG!
