Ali Lohan is only 17 years old and after the many challenges that Lindsay Lohan has faced in the public eye, one would assume that mother Dina Lohan would encourage her daughter down a different path. Apparently not, as word surfaced not too long ago that little sister Ali was pursuing a modeling career. And now the teenager was snapped in Beverly Hills with an entirely different head — or face depending on how you look at it.

The director of Ali’s agency of course maintains that the little Lohan has not had any work done, playing up the whole rapid growth of teenagers thing. Alexis Borges, the agency director at Next Model Management, told E! News:

“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. Aliana is a beautiful 17-year-old girl who is growing into her face and body, as is the norm for someone of her age. We take pastoral care of our models very seriously and encourage the models to maintain a healthy lifestyle and body shape.”

Sight change is not what comes to mind when I see these photos and it’s quite sickening the way media people always try and sell blatant plastic surgery and enhancements to young people under the guise of kids simply growing up. Given the history of the Lohans, it’s sadly not at all surprising that this young girl has turned up with alterations to her face. But it is quite shocking that Dina Lohan continues to play coy about her rather transparent manipulation and exploitation of her daughters — and Mr. Lohan too for that matter.

Considering Dina’s willingness to offer her family up to the press, I’m surprised that she isn’t dragging her daughters before cameras pointing out each and every procedure with a felt tip pen. As long as it garners headlines, the mother seems to know no limits.
