Microsuction Earwax Removal
Microsuction earwax removal is undertaken using a microscope and a medical suction device, hence the term microsuction. A very thin wand type fitting is fitted to the end of the suction tube which allows the professional to gently remove the earwax from your canal.
Usually micro suction does not need pre-treatment with drops, however, two days of Earol (clinically treated olive oil) is the best preparation. An audiologist will examine your ear using a binaural microsope (either fixed or with loupes glasses) and, using the fine low pressure suction device, safely remove the blockage. Also, using a video otoscope we will show you the condition of the ear before and after the treatment.
Microsuction is the safest and most comfortable method of earwax removal, no liquids are used during the procedure. Which means that there is no fuss or mess during the procedure. The fact that we can clearly see the ear canal and more importantly exactly what we are doing, makes it an exceptionally safe procedure. It is an especially comfortable process and it is usually undertaken in a few minutes making it a same day service.

The process is the safest way to remove earwax as the professional can see everything they are doing during the removal.
Unlike ear syringing or ear irrigation, where ear wax is flushed out without a view of the canal, during microsuction, the canal and the ear wax is being directly viewed with the microscope whilst it is being removed. This makes the procedure much quicker, safer and comfortable for the patient.
