Micro-Suction & Irrigation £55
Our newest clinic in Cheadle, Stockport is taking appointments now for ear wax removal by micro-suction and syringing.
Earwax is a natural substance that helps protect the ear canal. But, it can also cause problems when too much collects or becomes impacted in the ears. Ignoring your ear wax build up can cause issues to your hearing, it can lead to infection and even cause Tinnitus.
It's important to keep your ears healthy and clean so they continue to function properly. You should never attempt to remove excess earwax on your own at home because doing so could push the wax further into the canal or damage delicate structures in and around the ear such as nerves, blood vessels, bones, skin glands and hair cells within the inner part of your ear canal. We have even seen patients who have perforated their own ear drums with pens or cotton buds.
You should only ever see an Ear Wax Specialist Clinician. I'm Nadeem and I'm a qualified Hearing Care & Aural Specialist with NHS training.
Unless you have previously had a perforated ear drum, you must use oil to pre-treat your ears for a minimum of three days.
When I see you, I will look in your ears to determine the consistency of your wax, the shape of your ear canals and your medical history. Then we will decide together whether to use irrigation or microsuction.
Our clinic will be open Monday to Friday with IMMEDIATE APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE.
Please note that you may need irrigation and/or a repeat treatment if you have used any drops in your ears containing hydrogen peroxide or bicarbonate of soda. These drops contain bleach and, in most cases, it results in the wax dissolving and hardening on the ear drum. It is not safe to remove wax from the ear drum.
(Earol OR Pure Olive Oil FROM THE CHEMIST is the best solution to soften ear wax prior to micro-suction). Use this twice a day and each time, massage the tragus. Do not put cotton wool in your ears as this will soak up the oil.
Please also be aware that the use of cotton buds in the ear can also make the treatment difficult as the wax can become impacted and you will push the wax further down the ear canal
Please ensure you follow my advice in order for your appointment to run smoothly and to avoid unnecessary return appointments and incur further charges. Remember, the longer you have ignored your ear wax, the more susceptible you will be to ear infections.
MICRO SUCTION EAR WAX REMOVAL
Micro suction is the preferred method of ear wax removal used by ENT (ear nose and throat) consultants. It is a safe and pain-free method of wax removal if your ear wax is soft.
Micro Suction uses a low pressure suction device to remove the ear wax. It acts as a mini vacuum, but can only be used if the wax is not too runny.
Please trust your Clinician to discuss the best method of wax removal for you.
EAR IRRIGATION WAX REMOVAL
Ear irrigation uses water (at room temperature) which is gently flushed into the ear through a purpose made machine which controls the water pressure carefully and precisely so that the ear cannot be damaged.
The ear wax is softened and dislodged and then carried out of the ear by the gentle force of the water. Irrigation is different to ‘ear syringing’ which is an old fashioned type of removal where wax was literally syringed from the ear.
If you suffer with Tinnitus, ear irrigation will not worsen the condition
WHAT MY PATIENTS SAY
Hi, I just wanted to say thank you to the gentleman who treated my mother yesterday at your clinic. He was so caring and patient with her. Thank you so much for agreeing to treat her during these difficult times. We would not hesitate to use your clinic again. Thank you.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your patience and skill during my appointment, I am thrilled and so relieved at the results! I can't have been an easy patient to see; very nervous and squeamish and in some discomfort with almost complete deafness in one ear.
Amazing and so nice to be able to hear again after a month,- and get some sleep!
I wish to compliment Nadeem on his efficient and professional service. Very well mannered and put me at ease during the process of removing my ear wax. Would recommend him to anyone thinking of having a similar treatment.
