Priscilla Presley has been named as one of the victims in a plastic surgery scam that’s left a number of Hollywood’s high-profile socialites disfigured.
An unlicensed doctor, claiming to have a new “miracle drug” for battling the effects of aging, injected Elvis’ ex with an industrial low-grade silicone similar to that used by mechanics to grease car parts. Argentinian born plastic surgeon Daniel Serrano was unlicensed in the U.S. when he performed the cosmetic procedure on Priscilla in 2003. (Wonder if her got Joan Von Ark, too?)
Dr. Serrano, dubbed Dr. Daniel by his patients, charged thousands of dollars for his own special-blend of “anti-aging solutions.” The doctor was sentenced to eighteen months in federal prison in 2005 on charges related to the illegal injections.
In a statement released on Tuesday, a rep for the sixty-two year old Dancing With The Stars contestant said: “Priscilla Presley was one of many documented victims of Dr. Serrano. An investigation which uncovered his misconduct ultimately lead to his imprisonment. Ms. Presley dealt with this matter years ago and everything is well.”
