Complications of ear wax removal with micro-suction is extremely uncommon. However, the possible complications, side-effects and risks in the procedure include: Incomplete removal of ear wax, requiring a return visit *fee’s apply. This is generally due to: severely impacted wax, wax that has been forced down the canal and too uncomfortable to remove, or children are unable to sit still (causing distress). CHILDREN: If wax has not been softened adequately prior to appointment, the Registered Nurse may deem the procedure too risky due to the child being in distress (unable to remain still etc.), therefore the wax may not be able to be removed. Referral to an ENT specialist may be recommended. Please click on the CHILDREN tab to review more information regarding preparation prior to a child’s appointment with Ear Cleaning Clinic.
