Microsuction – Pamela Drew
Micro-suction is the process of removing wax from your ears by using a small suction tube and probe to gently remove any excess wax in the ear.
After asking a little about your medical history, and having acknowledged that we can carry out the treatment safely, I will outline any risks if any, to having the procedure performed before checking that you are happy to proceed.
I will then look into your ears using an otoscope that takes a photo of inside your ear so you can see what’s going on.
This allows us to ensure the wax in your ears is soft enough to be removed using micro-suction.
If the wax is soft enough, I will gently insert the suction tube and probe into your ear to remove the wax.
If the wax is too hard to remove, we will advise you to use wax softening drops such as olive oil or sodium bicarbonate before booking you in for a second appointment to remove the wax.
Please ensure you speak to a healthcare professional before using wax softening drops.
The process is generally painless, but it can be noisy and, at times, a little uncomfortable. If at any point you feel discomfort or pain during the appointment, please make sure you let me know.
Depending on the amount of wax in your ears, you might find that things sound a little different once the wax has been removed. You might also notice a small amount of ringing or buzzing in your ears, but this should settle down after a couple of days.
Blocked ears will be a thing of the past and your hearing should improve 🙂
