What a horrible way to go. Dr Frank Ryan was a beloved plastic surgeon to the stars and responsible for Heidi Montag‘s jaw-dropping transformation. He also hadÃ‚Â Gene Simmons, the Gastineau Girls, Janice Dickinson, Shauna Sand, Vince Neil and Adrianne Curry on his roster, a who’s who of Hollywood’s most famous fake faces and bods.
Ryan’s 1995 Jeep Wrangler went down a rocky embankment towards the ocean on the Pacific Coast Highway yesterday. It landed on its roof, with Frank stuck inside. Lifeguards even tried to help get him out but to no success and when the paramedics arrived Dr Ryan was pronounced dead. The official cause is Ã‚Â “blunt force head injuries.” Ryan’s dog was also in the car and was found in the ocean. His eye and paws were injured but was otherwise released yesterday and in stable condition. There are some reports that he was messaging and tweeting when he accidentally drove over the cliff.
Condolences have started pouring in from all Dr. Ryan’s celebrity friends and clients. Heidi Montag tweeted, Ã‚Â ”I am devastated to hear the news of Dr. Frank Ryan’s death. 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.”
We’d argue that scooping out Heidi’s back wasn’t really world changing, but still – this is sad news. We send our prayers to his family and loved ones.
