Meet Dr. Ott,

as presented at the 2018 Rose of Hope Award Event

Previous to joining New York Plastic Surgical Group, a Division of Long Island Plastic Surgical Group in 2022, Dr. Ott owned and operated her own successful plastic surgery practice where she offered patients a full range of advanced breast, face, and body procedures including body sculpting and reconstruction post bariatric surgery. In addition to these offerings, Dr. Ott remains dedicated to her work as a breast cancer reconstruction specialist. Some of these techniques include oncoplastic approaches to breast conservation therapies, new single staged immediate implant mastectomy reconstructions, and a full spectrum of traditional autologous breast reconstructions including free tissue transfer and DIEP flaps.

Dr. Ott Young is a member of many professional organizations including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. She is fluent in English, German, and Spanish.

In her free time, Dr. Ott also runs Avalon Farm, a horse breeding and training stable in North Salem, NY. Throughout the year she uses the farm to host educational events and breast cancer fundraisers, all allowing patients to enjoy a peaceful experience in nature.

5 Star Patient Rating

star review


Dr. Ott is the kindest and most compassionate doctor. She makes you feel at ease. After a cancer diagnosis, and finding out I needed a mastectomy, I was very scared. She spoke in such calm reassuring manner, I knew I was in good hands. She is so easy to talk to and helps put your fears aside. She is a very skilled, superb surgeon. I no longer feel self-conscious about having had my breasts removed. My scars are minimal too. I trust no other doctor like I trust her.
