Priscilla Presley, Cosmetic Surgery & Her Puffy Face?
Just as her husband and daughter have had in the past, Priscilla Presley’s cosmetic surgery rumors and speculations are a staple of the tabloid pages.
The wife of the king of rock Elvis Presley, Priscilla (born May 24th, 1945) has become a well known and even celebrated actress in her own right, with recurring roles in the Naked Gun series with Leslie Nielson as well as a five year run on the television show Dallas.
In addition to her work in entertainment, Priscilla also sat on the board that turned Graceland into a multi-million dollar tourist attraction that many fans of her late husband’s work still flock to.
Has Priscilla Presley Had Surgery?
The answer, sadly, is that Priscilla has been the victim of criminally bad plastic surgery. This isn’t the same as Marie Osmond’s cosmetic surgery speculations, something Priscilla has been lying about getting. She’s actually been a victim of crime.
According to stylist.com Priscilla’s puffy face that’s still slightly distorted is the result of an unfortunate run in with an Argentian-born Daniel Serrano who claimed to be both a doctor and to have something that would make any plastic surgery celebrity young and beautiful in ways that Botox never could.
Of course not only was Serrano not a doctor, which fans of Angelina Jolie might think is no surprise, but the methods he was using to create these effects and to change the way his “patients” looked was illegal in the United States and was by no means FDA approved.
Priscilla Presley – Before and After Pictures
If you look at the pictures of the king of rock’s wife, the distortion caused by the illegal celebrity plastic surgery she underwent (along with other female celebrities like Diane Richie) is fairly easy to see and no one has contended it.
The “surgeon” in question injected silicone, the same sort of silicone that you would use to grease up car parts, directly into the patient’s bodies. This caused lumpiness and distortion, since silicone bonds with tissue and doesn’t smooth out when injected this way.
Silicone gel packs, such as those used for breast implants, do and those are FDA approved and safe. This surgical procedure on the other hand drastically changed the way that Priscilla Presley looked, and the damage even when tackled by legal and talented plastic surgeons has been difficult to deal with.
Why Did She Do It?
According to Doctor John Anastasatos, who has done a lot of repair work on the victims of “Dr. Jiffy Lube,” Presley was in the same boat as many female celebrities who had to be first in line to get to the next supposed fountain of youth.
Plastic surgery is a major thing in Hollywood, and being the first to discover a revolutionary new procedure can sometimes blind you to checking up on the doctor or doing your research.
When that happens you get something like the Priscilla Presley plastic surgery horror story, which should act as a prime example to anyone thinking about getting plastic surgery done.
