Lindsay Lohan’s sister Ali defends her look against plastic surgery claims

Recently photographed in Beverly Hills, Ali, 17, was seen leaving her hairdresser and looking different than before.

A thinner framed, a refined nose, a more angular face, fuller lips were traits that prompted some to ask whether or not Lilo’s little sister has gone under the knife.

Rumors about her dramatic change were also sparked by the fact that the 17-year-old has recently signed a modeling contract with the Next Model Management agency.

However, her rep denies the allegations.

“Aliana has never had any type of plastic surgery in her life, nor has she ever considered it,” her rep told People.

“Her success as a model lies with her natural looks and she has no interest in changing that,” the statement continues. “During the past two years, she has gone through a normal teenage growth spurt that has made her taller and slimmer.”

Ali’s rep insists that these changes are a consequence of her growth, which “has also slightly changed the composure of her face, all of which is typical of what happens to kids in their mid to late teens,” he explains. “It’s what most people refer to as the awkward stage. Ali is growing up; that’s all.”
