Dr. Frank Ryan, 50, the Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who famously performed 10 procedures on ex-Hills star Heidi Montag in one day, has died in a car accident. After a hiking daytrip with his border collie, Ryan's jeep ran off the side of the Pacific Coast Highway into some rocks. "Lifeguards initially tried to help Ryan, to no avail," TMZ reports. "Ryan was trapped in the vehicle with major head injuries; he died at the scene." [PopEater]
