Priscilla Presley confirmed reports Tuesday that she once fell victim to an unqualified plastic surgeon.
In a statement released on Tuesday, a rep for the 62-year-old "Dancing With the Stars" contestant said: "Priscilla Presley was one of many documented victims of Dr. [Daniel] Serrano. An investigation which uncovered his misconduct ultimately lead to his imprisonment. Ms. Presley dealt with this matter years ago and everything is well."
In November 2004, federal agents arrested Serrano, who was only a nurse in the U.S., and charged him with importing and distributing a drug that was a combination of synthetic collagen and tiny solid beads that was legal in some countries but not approved by the FDA, People reported at the time.
"He's a very charming guy," Ellen Lavinthal, who sometimes used Serrano's services, told People in December 2004, "and he had a lot of fabulous endorsements from the women he had been treating." She added: "He's very good at taking advantage of women."
In 2006, Serrano pleaded guilty in federal court in Los Angeles to conspiracy, smuggling and use of unapproved drugs, the Los Angeles Times reported. He was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison.
