Heidi Montag's Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan, Dies in Car Accident

Heidi Montag's cosmetic surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan has died in a fatal car crash.
The Hills star's surgeon, who carried out Heidi's infamous surgery which saw the reality TV star endure 10 procedures in one day was travelling in his Jeep when in veered off the Pacific Coast Highway near LA yesterday.
According to TMZ, Ryan's Jeep landed on rocks where lifeguards tried to free the surgeon, who was trapped inside the vehicle with serious head injuries.
Ventura County Fire Department then attempted to hoist the 50-year old from the wreckage using a helicopter but the rescue was called off after he was pronounced dead at the scene.
In an ironic twist to the incident, Dr. Ryan hit Twitter 25 minutes before the crash to post: "After 25 years of driving by, I finally hiked to the top of the giant sand dune on the pch west of Malibu. Much harder than it looks! Whew!"

"I am devastated to hear the news of Dr. Frank Ryan's death," Montag, 23, wrote on Twitter. "He was the most amazing person I have ever known. He was an angel and changed my life and the lives of everyone he met. He was the most brilliant talented surgeon who will ever exist. Dr. Frank Ryan changed the world. My thoughts and prayers go out to his mother, family, friends, and anyone who was ever blessed enough to meet him. He is in a better place."

  1. It is terrible tragedy that Frank Ryan has passed away. You can help remember him by contributing to his memorial website at http://francisharryfrankryan.people2remember.com/

  2. Not to stomp on his grave but the list of people he's worked on all have body dysmorphic disorder and I believe he should have turned them all away for the countless surgeries he performed on them. Heidi is at the top of that list. It sounds like he was philanthropic with his charity so who am I to judge him, he will get that but not from me. Just my observations. There is a moral issue to examine here as to why he did the surgeries that he did.
