Ear wax possesses natural antibacterial properties, and as a part of our approach, we aim to retain a small amount within the ear canal to help safeguard your ears.

What is Microsuction?

Microsuction earwax removal is a highly effective and gentle procedure that employs vacuum technology to eliminate excess earwax.

Why is it better than syringing?

Ear syringing is generally discouraged as a primary method of earwax removal due to potential complications, ineffectiveness, and a lack of precision. The force of water being pushed into the ear canal can lead to ear infections, damage to the ear drum, or even further impacted earwax. Safer alternatives, like microsuction, dry removal tools and specialised ear drops are recommended. Gentle irrigation can be employed as a tool alongside microsuction where the eardrum is known to be intact.

Prior to your appointment

To ensure the procedure is as comfortable and effective as possible, we kindly request that you soften the earwax in the five days leading up to your appointment. We recommend applying olive oil drops or using a spray like Earol once a day in the affected ear and repeating this routine for five days. This is not recommended if you have a perforated ear drum.

During your appointment

Our Audiologist will begin by discussing your ear health history before conducting a comprehensive ear health examination, including capturing images of your ear drums. Subsequently, they will safely and gently remove your wax. You will also be offered before and after photos demonstrating the results. In the event that earwax removal is deemed unsuitable or unnecessary following the ear health check, a £20 consultation fee will be the only charge incurred.

After your appointment 

After your treatment we will send you your before and after images if requested. It is recommended that you keep your ears clean and dry for the next couple of days. If you are prone to wax build up, your Audiologist can arrange a follow up appointment.
