Microsuction is seen as the gold standard of ear wax removal due to it being the safest, quickest and most effective treatment for blocked ears. The treatment is very comfortable and due to the nature of the microsuction procedure, ear wax can be removed irrespective of whether it is soft or hard. This differs from other methods commonly used such as irrigation ear wax removal where the wax has to be treated prior to the appointment to encourage a softer consistency

Step 1 – Medical History – Your audiologist will take your medical history and ask questions related to your ears.
Step 2 – Pre Examination of the ears – We will examine your ears using specialist equipment and advise if there is any wax in the ears.
Step 3 – Explanation – We will explain the microsuction ear wax removal procedure and what you should expect.
Step 4 – Microsuction– The procedure will last around 10 to 15 minutes. If the ear wax is really impacted or difficult to remove we will invite you back for a free follow up appointment.
Step 5 – Post Examination of the ears – Once the ear wax is successfully removed we will proceed to examine and check the health of your ears.
Step 6 – Free Follow Up– If the ear wax cannot be removed during your first appointment we will arrange a free follow up. Ear drops might be advised during this time to soften the ear wax.
If you are not booking a same-day appointment, it is generally advisable to use olive oil drops or a spray such as Earol, for 2-3 days prior to the appointment. This will help ensure that your ear wax is sufficiently softened to enable successful and comfortable removal on the day of the appointment.
If you have been advised not to get your ears wet or if you have had Microsuction before and have been advised not to use drops as the wax is usually sufficiently soft, then please follow this advice.
The use of cotton buds is not recommended. Cotton buds, or any object inserted into the ear, will generally push wax further down the ear canal, sometimes as far as the eardrum, which will result in you feeling even more blocked.
