All-natural Ali?

In an online poll at Us Weekly, 84 percent of readers believe that 17-year-old Ali Lohan — who looked awfully different in pics taken Tuesday — underwent plastic surgery. (As of Friday afternoon, over 8,000 votes were cast in the survey.)

But her mom, Dina Lohan, insists otherwise — telling Us Weekly any plastic surgery rumors are "absolutely not true!"

And Ali's publicist is also adament.

"Aliana has never had any type of plastic surgery in her life, nor has she ever considered it," rep Steve Honig tells Us Weekly. "Her success as a model lies with her natural looks and she has no interest in changing that."

(Lindsay Lohan's little sister signed a multi-year contract with NEXT Model Management last month.)

So why does Ali's face look so different?

"During the past two years, she has gone through a normal teenage growth spurt that has made her taller and slimmer. 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," Honig explains.

"It's what most people refer to as the awkward stage. Ali is growing up, that's all."
