London: Christie Brinkley has denied that she underwent a cosmetic facelift surgery, while her daughter was admitted for an elective rhinoplasty procedure.
The model was rumoured to have entered the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, a day before her daughter with musician Billy Joel checked-in.
However, the beauty has dismissed the reports.
"Alexa had breathing difficulties due to a deviated septum and decided to correct the appearance of her nose at the same time,” the Daily Star quoted her representative, as telling New York Post gossip column Page Six.
The spokesperson added: “As far as Christie is concerned, she was at Lenox Hill to support her daughter, and throughout her career people have speculated that she``s done this or that, which she always chooses to take as a compliment."
