Ear Wax Removal

Microsuction ear wax removal is a procedure that uses gentle suction to remove

excessive or troublesome wax.

The ear canal produces wax (cerumen) to protect the ear from dust particles and irritation.

Excess wax usually migrates out of the ear canal naturally, but often it can build up

and block the ear causing discomfort and hearing problems.


Using magnification to visualise the ear a small sterile probe is inserted into the ear canal and the wax is drawn outwards. This is almost like a mini ‘hoover’ so can be a bit noisy. The procedure is relatively quick and is considered a safer alternative to syringing.


The use of olive oil treatment (Earol is good) prior to microsuction is often recommended but please contact me to discuss this.
