Debunking the plastic surgery rumors, a representative for Linsday Lohan's sister insists changes happen to kids in their mid to late teens, and stresses it's just what people called 'awkward stage.'
After Lindsay Lohan and Next Model Management came to her defense, Ali Lohan has her representative speaking out against rumors she has had plastic surgery. In a statement regarding the matter, Steve Honig stressed, "Aliana has never had any type of plastic surgery in her life, nor has she ever considered it."
Insisting that the changes in the 17-year-old's face are natural, Steve said, "Her success as a model lies with her natural looks and she has no interest in changing that." He continued, "During the past two years, she has gone through a normal teenage growth spurt that has made her taller and slimmer."
The representative further added, "It 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. It's what most people refer to as the awkward stage." He concluded the debunking statement by pointing out, "Ali is growing up; that's all."
Ali drew speculations that she has gone under the knife after she was photographed with a more angular face and fuller lips when she was out and about in Beverly Hills on September 6. Quick to pour cold water to the rumors was her older sister Lindsay, who insisted to E! News, "She has never."
Ali's modeling agency has also denied Ali had plastic surgery. Alexis Borges, the agency director of Next Model Management Los Angeles, said, "As a young girl who is growing up, it's natural for her facial features to change slightly, and we see this with many of the younger models we represent."
