Tamara Kemp, MD

Dr. Kemp is a highly-skilled, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon with expertise in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the breast, body, and face. She is recognized for her stunning results, precise surgical technique, and compassionate bedside manner. At the heart of her practice is the belief that building a strong, trustworthy relationship with her patients is essential to a successful surgical experience.

Dr. Kemp grew up in the gorgeous mountain community of Park City, Utah. With a Bachelor's degree in Biology and Economics earned with Summa Cum Laude honors, she continued her education at the University of Utah School of Medicine on a U.S. Navy Scholarship. She was honored with membership to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and graduated with distinction. Her passion for the artistry and transformative impact of plastic and reconstructive surgery led her to complete her subspecialty training at the highly-regarded University of Washington in Seattle, one of the top 3 plastic surgery residencies in the country. During her six-year integrated residency program, she honed her skills under the guidance of renowned leaders in every aspect of plastic surgery.

Upon finishing her residency, Dr. Kemp was proud to serve as a Plastic Surgeon in the U.S. Navy at Portsmouth Naval Medical Center. There, she held several key positions including Plastic Surgery Department Head, Director of Breast Microsurgery, and Director of the Pediatric Cleft and Craniofacial Anomalies Team. In addition to her clinical responsibilities, she remains dedicated to advancing the field through her roles as Assistant Professor of Surgery at Eastern Virginia Medical School Plastic Surgery Residency, and as Surgical Director of the Healthcare Simulation and Bioskills Training Center and Portsmouth Naval Medical Center.

Dr. Kemp is passionate about surgical education and strives to empower her patients by providing comprehensive information about their procedures and tailoring treatment plans to their individual needs and desires. Her focus on aesthetics and balance leads to stunning, harmonious results.

Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kemp specializes in breast and body procedures. With thousands of successful breast surgeries under her belt, she has a deep understanding of the changes a woman's body can experience due to factors such as childbirth, aging, sun exposure, breast cancer, and more. As a mother herself, she is dedicated to helping women restore their confidence by becoming the best version of themselves. She particularly enjoys performing mommy makeovers and body contouring liposuction, knowing the positive impact these procedures can have on her patients' daily lives. She also takes great pride and satisfaction in being able to offer tissue-based microvascular breast reconstruction to the breast cancer community of Hampton Roads, in collaboration with Dr. Jablonka. Dr. Kemp is meticulous, open-minded, and always focuses on understanding her patients' goals, working tirelessly to help them achieve their desired outcomes.
