Heidi Montag speaks out about passing of her plastic surgeon

Heidi Montag is "devastated to hear the news" of the death of her plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan. Ryan unexpectedly died when his Jeep tipped over on the Pacific Coast Highway on Monday afternoon.

"He was the most amazing person I have ever known," Montag tweeted. "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." She added that her thoughts and prayers go out to "his mother, family, friends and anyone who was ever blessed to meet him."

Ryan is best known for being the plastic surgeon who performed 10 procedures on Montag in one day in November 2009. He defended his choices to RadarOnline, saying “I think Heidi is brave, she is a hero for talking about this, quite frankly. I am a little bit, too, because I knew this would happen and I told Heidi at the beginning if you are going to have people cover this you can say what you want to say."
