Heidi Montag's surgeon dead

The man who gave Heidi Montag her famous new look is dead.

Heidi Montag's surgeon deadThe Hills star Heidi Montag is reportedly in the middle of a divorce from husband Spencer Pratt, and now her plastic surgeon, Dr Frank Ryan, has died.

According to TMZ, the plastic surgeon who famously performed 10 surgeries on Heidi Montag was killed after his Jeep went over the side of the Pacific Coast Highway on August 16.

Frank Ryan was allegedly trapped inside the Jeep and suffered major head injuries. According to the TMZ site, "The Ventura County Fire Department tried hoisting Ryan using a helicopter, but the attempt was called off. Ryan was pronounced dead at the scene."

Just before the crash the plastic surgeon tweeted, "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!"

Dr Frank Ryan operated on many celebrities but became the target of scrutiny after altering Heidi Montag's appearance with a host of procedures including cheekbone and chin jobs, an eyebrow lift and breast enlargements.

Heidi Montag expressed her desire to go bigger with her breasts but told Jay Leno, "I legally can't right now. The limit is 800cc and I have 700cc."

When it comes to other surgeries Montag added, "I think I've reached the point where I can stop. I think I'm good for awhile. I'm surger-ied out."

E!'s Dr 90210 told he wouldn't have performed more than three surgeries on Montag but said Dr Frank Ryan was a good surgeon.

Heidi Montag is currently in the middle of divorce proceedings with husband Spencer Pratt. Many believe the reality star's divorce is a clever attempt to keep the couple in the tabloids.

Heidi Montag has yet to speak of her surgeon's death. Stay tuned for more on this developing story.
