What is Microsuction Ear Wax Removal & Is it Safe?

Safe, Painless & Very Comfortable

Microsuction is one of the safest and the most comfortable methods to remove ear wax. It is a procedure that uses gentle suction to remove excessive or stubborn wax from the ears.

No liquid or water is used in the procedure, it is comfortable and clean for the patient whilst also minimising the risk of damaging the ear drum.

Microsuction ear wax removal enables the clinician to clearly see the ear canal and therefore the procedure is extremely safe.

Microsuction brings instant relief from the inconvenience and discomfort of blocked ears.

Earwax Removal Appointment Process

What to Expect at Your Ear Wax Removal Consultation?

Step 1Medical History. Your clinician will take your medical history and ask questions related to your ears.

Step 2Pre Examination of the ears – We will examine your ears using specialist equipment and advise if there is any wax in the ears.

Step 3Explanation – the microsuction procedure will be explained to you in detail.

Step 4Procedure – ear wax removal will last between 5-10mins. If the wax in the ears is stubborn it may take slightly longer to remove. Microsuction is pain-free and the safest procedure to remove ear wax.

Step 5Post Examination of the ears – Once we have successfully removed the ear wax, we will examine the ears again to check the health of your ear drums.

Step 6Free Follow Up– If we cannot fully remove the ear wax in the first appointment, we will rebook you for a free follow up within four weeks of your original appointment.


What Happens If Ear Wax is Not Removed?

Protect Your Hearing

If you have excessive ear wax it will eventually cause a plug that can block the ear and may result in the following:
Sudden hearing loss
Pain in the ear
Tinnitus (a ringing or buzzing sound constantly heard in the ear)
A cough – this is actually an unknown symptom to a lot of people but the pressure on the nerve in the ear caused by the earwax can result in coughing.

If you have any of the above issues and you are unsure of the cause it is advised to get your ear checked out by a professional who will be able to take a look into your ears and if needed can safely and effectively remove any problems using a microsuction earwax removal procedure.

Ear Wax Removal FAQ's

How do I know if it is ear wax that is causing the problem?

If you have not had confirmation that there is definitely excessive ear wax buildup, we will examine the ears to confirm this. If there is ear wax build-up, we are able to remove this within the same appointment by microsuction. If there is no wax, we only charge £30 for the consultation. We will offer you a hearing test (£30) and a tympanometry test (£60) to further investigate the reasons for your discomfort.

Should I use olive oil drops before the appointment?

Olive oil can be used a few days before your appointment to help soften the ear wax. It is not absolutely necessary and we can still remove ear wax from the majority of ears within the first appointment without the use of olive oil drops.

If the wax is very stubborn and we are unable to remove it in the first appointment, we will rebook you for a free follow up within four weeks of your original appointment. Please do not use olive oil if you have a perforation in the ear drum.

How long does the appointment take?

The microsuction procedure itself will take between 5-10 mins. Occasionally it may take longer if the wax is very stubborn. For children, the appointment times will take between 15-20 minutes.
