Heidi Montag’s Surgeon Killed in Car Crash

By: / August 17, 2010

Dr. Frank Ryan, a famed Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who performed Heidi Montag‘s recent surgical makeover, has been killed in a car crash, TMZ is reporting.

According to TMZ, the 50-year-old doctor’s Jeep went off the side of Pacific Coast Highway in southern California around 4:30 PM on Monday. The vehicle landed on the rocks near the coast.

Lifeguards reportedly tried to save Frank, but he was trapped inside his vehicle with major head injuries. Frank was pronounced dead at the scene.

Shortly before the crash, Frank had tweeted about hiking to the top of a sand dune near Malibu with his border collie Jill. The dog was reportedly injured, but survived the crash. Frank’s last tweet showed a picture of Jill looking over PCH from on top of the sand dune. “Much harder than it looks,” Frank tweeted, “Whew!”

Frank famously performed ten surgeries on Montag in one day. Some of the procedures included lip injections, cheek injections, chin reduction, and breast implants. The two appeared together on Good Morning America earlier this year to discuss Heidi’s surgeries. Watch the video below.


Frank had also worked on such celebrities as Gene Simmons and Janice Dickinson, who is reportedly “stunned” by his death and sends her love to his family.
