ELVIS PRESLEY's ex-wife PRISCILLA has confirmed an unqualified plastic surgeon performed a botched cosmetic procedure on her in 2003.
The socialite and actress, who is among the celebrities taking part in the current season of U.S. reality TV show Dancing With The Stars, was a client of Dr. Daniel Serrano, who was jailed for injecting industrial, low-grade silicone into women's faces.
The unlicensed Serrano claimed his injections worked better than Botox, but the non-approved drug he smuggled into America from Argentina left some clients with holes in their faces and paralysis. Serrano was indicted for smuggling drugs, and the conspiracy and use of unapproved drugs, and convicted.
He was released last week (ends 21st. Mar 08) and is currently being investigated by federal immigration officials, and could be deported. Presley's representative has now confirmed the Naked Gun star was operated on by Serrano, a day after the story first broke.
The spokesperson says, "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" .
