Priscilla Presley has confirmed she was operated on by an unlicensed cosmetic surgeon.Priscilla - ex-wife of the late Elvis Presley - was injected with industrial-grade silicone used to lubricate automobile parts in 2003. Dr. Daniel Serrano, who eventually was jailed for his illegal surgery techniques, performed the procedure on the 'Naked Gun' actress.Priscilla's representative said: "Priscilla Presley was one of many documented victims of Dr. Serrano. An investigation which uncovered his misconduct ultimately led to his imprisonment. Ms. Presley dealt with this matter years ago and everything is well." Serrano was indicted and convicted for smuggling drugs into the US from Argentina, and the conspiracy and use of unapproved drugs and medical products that left some clients with holes in their faces and paralysis.Serrano was released recently and is now under investigation by federal immigration officials. Priscilla suffered no long-term effects from the illegal procedure.

She is currently competing in hit US talent show 'Dancing with the Stars'.
