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.

Not True    


Story is false.

Priscilla Presley has NOT talked about this Serrano guy, because she was NOTinvolved in his procedures.

King and Richie were involved, but not Presley.

Does she have three lips, or is that her tongue showing? What a freak.

IMO Priscilla had these procedures done intentionally, including
cheek implants. She has looked this way for several years now and,
and her looks haven't changed since said cosmetic surgery. If she's
making excuses now, it's because of the recent criticism of her
looks. Check it out!

What is wrong with aging naturally anymore. As long as you keep yourself trim, i.e., not another Kirstie Alley, those people are the most beautiful. The fake lips, huge boobs, eyes pulled tight out to there are so unattractive. I used to think Priscilla was one of the most beautiful people in the world in the 70's. Now she's just another hollywood joke!

I have always thought Priscilla Presley was a beautiful woman. Too bad she now looks like Ernest Bourgnine.

Just what is her "talent"?
Her ex-husband was an overrated hillbilly.
No real talent.
Didn't write any songs, probably couldn't read.
Just good merchandizing by the Colonel.

The stars shown have morphed into a lesser version of Madame Truseau's collection. Botox gone bad - I really don't think it's the plastic surgery but the Botox that's making them look like monsters. Jamie Lee Curtis looks great at 50 - but she's not fighting her age, but working with it beautifully!

HELLO!!!!!!!! Can we say Stupidity!!! I totally agree with cambel! Why in the world would you not check out your doc?! Have these celebs not learned from the ones in the past who have even lost their lives b/c of this kind of stuff?! That should tell you something if they're not certified or if they're smuggling it in!

Priscilla Presley is just another Heather Mills. The only reason she is famous is because she married someone famous. Both of them have no talent, and now Priscilla looks like a joke as well.

Go away you has been!!!
