Donna Ennis, Double Board-Certified Nurse Practitioner
ENNIS PLASTIC SURGERY
Donna Ennis has always had a passion to help people. She studied nursing at the University of Alabama, becoming an RN in 1994 and finishing her master’s degree in nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 1997. She and her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. L. Scott Ennis, met in high school, both attended the University of Alabama and eventually decided to start a practice together. “We are a unique husband-and-wife team of 25 years who offer our patients a broad spectrum of services to achieve their aesthetic goals,” says Donna.
Q: What makes you different from all the other injectors?
A: I am known as the “gentle injector” and I take my time. I use a specialized numbing cream that has three different numbing ingredients that truly keep the patients from feeling the injectables. My patients can’t believe they don’t experience bruising or pain with lip augmentation as well as other sites that are injected. I also give my patients my cell number, so they have direct access to me (as well as their surgeon if they have had surgery.)
Q: How do you plump lips without them looking unnatural?
A: I don’t typically use more than one syringe in patients’ lips at a time so I can keep them looking natural with a youthful plump lip. Once the filler has settled in the lips we can use more to gradually build on the foundation that we achieved by taking it slow and not overdoing it.
Q: How do you treat the age lines from the lips up to the nose?
A: I do what is called a Lip Flip with Botox which makes the upper lip slightly bigger, relaxes fine lines on the top lip and makes the distance from the bottom of your nose to the top of your upper lip shorter, which together achieves a more youthful upper lip and mouth.
