After the procedure there is a risk of developing an ear infection if aftercare is not followed. Therefore, it is important to keep your ears clean and dry for at least 5-7 days post procedure.
This is an extremely safe, gentle and effective method. This procedure is typically used to remove larger quantities of ear wax.
A fine tube is connected to a suction machine. Our ear wax technician is able to view your ear canal with the aid of a microscope to allow them to see exactly where the wax build up is. It is a very thorough process and is particularly suitable for smaller ear canals and for those who may have suffered problems with their ears previously, such as ear drum perforation.
The technician will first examine your ears to conform there is earwax present. Using the information you provide on your pre completed health questionnaire, we will determine is microsuction is a viable option for you based on previous ear health.
The process can take anywhere between 5 and 20 minutes depending on the amount of wax present and the position. Following the procedure, we will check the ear canal once again to ensure it is clear and healthy.
