Everyone who’s seen Priscilla Presley in the last few years has had one question: What the hell happened to her face? Priscilla has always been a beautiful woman, but lately her face has looked frightening and plastic- much like the face of socialite infamous Jocelyn Wildenstein, better known as “The Cat Lady.” TMZ reports that Priscilla was the victim of a scam artist who claimed his injections were better than Botox, when in fact they were just low-grade silicone.
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, 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.
Paralysis and holes in your face? Damn! I wish Priscilla had spoken with natural aging advocate Jamie Lee Curtis before she hired this clown to ruin her face. She was a beautiful woman and didn’t need any enhancement whatsoever, and now she looks like a sideshow freak. I’d bet if she had this to do over again, she would have been happy with her natural born face– wrinkles and all.
Note by Celebitchy: You can get a good facelift and not look like a cat person with pinched eyes. It’s just a matter of letting the surgery settle and not getting constant botox and restylane touch ups. That’s awful that Presley was injected with industrial silicone! How dreadful for her. Even though she looks freaky and is a Scientologist, I still like her. The 62-year-old is also doing great on “Dancing With The Stars.” Here are clips of Priscilla on DWTS from this week and last.
