Micro Suction ear wax removal is when ear wax is removed from the ear with the help of miniature vacuum cleaner. The suction tool is used to directly target the ear wax allowing it to be removed very precisely. In some cases Micro Suction is not ideal or not warranted, especially when the wax is very soft. In these cases we will employ a gentle and safe irrigation method to flush the wax out. This technique is sometimes used in conjunction with micro suction and can often result in almost complete wax removal which is required for certain hearing devices to be fitted.
How it is performed
The procedure is performed by Audiologists, Hearing Aid Dispensers and ENT doctors using a specialist instrument which works like a miniature vacuum cleaner, enabling us to suck the wax out of the ear without the need to use jets of water.
The tip of this light-weight, portable and easy to operate suction tool is placed into the ear canal opening allows access to entire ear canal and ear drum to facilitate effective ear wax removal. Surgeon designed ‘Loups’ are used to give and expanded view of the area, ensuring accurate and safe placement of the tool.
Micro suction ear wax removal typically takes 20 minutes to perform, but some wax can be deep seated or stubborn. This can vary depending on the amount and type of ear wax, how deep the ear wax is inside the ear canal, and whether you are having one or both ears treated. The procedure can last longer. It may even be removed over two or more appointments. There is no additional charge for a second or third appointment.
It is usually performed with you comfortably sat on a chair with your head titled to the side slightly so that the ear with ear wax can be easily accessed.
Micro-suction and irrigation are the most successful, however we can also remove wax manually when the ear is not suitable for normal methods.

** Hearing tests may sometimes be carried out a later date, since wax removal can temporarily alter your hearing thresholds.
As qualified practitioners, we do not use or recommend the use of ‘hopi candles’ or cotton buds as they been associated with causing irreparable damage to the outer ear leading to hearing loss.
