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.

Good. She deserves every minute of misery. That's what ya get when you mess with mother nature. She was fine before, and like so many others, could not mentally deal with getting older. Her money would have been better spent on a therapist for her insecurities. What women are doing to their bodies disgusts me. I really don't think they can see what freaks they make of themselves.

Anyone who is stupid enough to see a doctor without checking out his/her license through the state board is an idiot.

Does Scientology allow such things? Priscilla's one of the followers.

Since they claim 'Psychiatry Kills' - according to Scientology (give me a break)

The last time I saw a picture of her I wondered if she and her ex son-in-law visited the same plastic surgeon. They both have that same surreal look. Now I know. I was wrong. I wish her the best. I hope her face can be fixed.

These women are rich, and suppose to be smart....but really.....what idiots they were!
First and foremost....you should check too see if a doctor is who he says he is...that should be your very first priorty!!
So I say they get what they paid for....pain and suffering....bottom line.

These stupid showbiz people will do anything they 'think' will make them look young. They don't even investigate the 'doctors' ????
Even Botox is a poison, it's still relatively new. I bet in a few years from now if not sooner, there will be news about these shallow idiots having major health problems and crying about how their 'doctors' fooled them.
I have never seen anyone who's had any kind of plastic surgery or plastic/poison injections that looked even remotely good.
Age gracefully!

Thats really sad.....Pricilla was a beautiful woman ....
I personally dont see anything wrong with someone wanting to try to age gracefully with cosmetic surgery ...if that is what they need.........and not the notion that they are going to look 18 again...................

I hope those disfigured ....by these horrible...people, and dr.....get justice....

pricilla is still a very pretty woman..........
