Ear wax removal using Microsuction
Microsuction is a wax removal technique using a precision suction apparatus to suction unwanted or obstructing skin cells and wax from the ear canal. We use surgical lenses which provide binocular magnification so that the tip of the suction tube is always under direct vision. This technique differs from standard ear syringing where liquid is squirted into the ear to dislodge the wax. Microsuction is a more precise and gentle technique than ear syringing.
Why is Microsuction better?
Compared to traditional forms of wax removal – ear drops and irrigation or syringing, microsuction is:
- Cleaner and Neater
- Generally better tolerated with less side effects
- More effective and likely to need only one appointment
- A faster process as it doesn’t require weeks of ear drops to soften the wax
What to expect from Ear Microsuction
We will talk you through the procedure, show you the equipment and ask you to sign a consent form before we start.
The microsuction process can be noisy and occasionally can make you feel dizzy. This usually passes within a few seconds. The procedure can last up to 30 minutes for both ears.
