Famous LA Plastic Surgeon Dies


LOS ANGELES – Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan, who made headlines for performing multiple surgeries on reality TV star Heidi Montag, has died. He was 50 years old.
The California Highway Patrol says Ryan’s 1995 Jeep Wrangler went off the side of Pacific Coast Highway near Malibu and landed on its roof Monday afternoon.
Besides Montag, Ryan’s celebrity clientele included musician Vince Neil, actor Lorenzo Lamas, reality stars Lisa Gastineau and Adrianne Curry and several models and beauty queens.
Montag, who underwent 10 procedures in one day with Ryan late last year, took to Twitter to share her reaction to his death.
“I am devastated,” the 23-year-old wrote on the micro-blogging site Tuesday. “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.”
The Ventura County medical examiner’s office said an autopsy would be performed Tuesday. He said no cause of death has been established.
Ryan’s friend and client, model and reality star Janice Dickinson, was “deeply, deeply anguished” after hearing of the doctor’s death, her publicist said.
