Ear Wax Removal via Microsuction is considered safer than other methods such as syringing. The Ear Wax Removal will be carried out by a trained clinician working to the protocols set out within the Ear Wax Removal Clinic's TM Aural Microsuction Procedures Manual. Complications of Ear Wax Removal that Microsuction are uncommon; however possible complications, side-effects and material risk inherent in the procedure include, but are not limited to: incomplete removal of ear Wax requiring a return visit (for severely impacted wax), minor bleeding, discomfort, ringing in the ear (Tinnitus), perforation of the ear drum and hearing loss. To ensure the risk of complication is minimised, it is essential that accurate past medical history is supplied to our clinicians. In addition, it is important the patient remains relatively still during the procedure as sudden movement may significantly increase the risk of ear drum perforation, permanent hearing loss and/or bleeding.

Microsuction is a system which effectively uses a vacuum to clear out any debris or wax from the ear canal. There is currently only one CE-marked equipment to use; however, it is common practice to use off-label devices: The CE marked suction unit is to remove fluids from the airway or respiratory support system and infectious materials from wounds and has been adapted for aural micro suction. In the procedure of microsuction, a fine suction tube is gently inserted into the ear canal while being viewed closely through a microscope or magnifying Loupe headsets.
