for the build-up of earwax in the auditory canal, and in most cases, provides instant relief.
All equipment used during the procedure is single use ensuring safety and hygiene at all times.
Our Nurses and Hearing Aid Audiologists have had extensive training in MicroSuction Earwax removal, are fully qualified in the procedure and maintain an ongoing training program to ensure they are up to with the latest medical procedures.
How long does the procedure take?
In most cases MicroSuction takes between 15 and 30 minutes
Do I need to use softening drops?
MicroSuction can be performed without softening drops but ideally, we recommend 2 to 3 days, morning and evening of olive oil initially, to soften wax and aid removal.
What is MicroSuction?
MicroSuction is safer than irrigation (syringing) and is the preferred method of medical practitioners for the safe removal of wax in the auditory canal. Using a Binocular Microscope to view the ear canal and eardrum, the qualified practitioner will gently remove the wax utilising a low-pressure suction device.
What happens during my appointment?
Before MicroSuction can be carried out you will have a consultation with your ear care specialist and all relevant medical history will be taken. Video Otoscopy (an instrument to look down the ears that has a tiny video camera that transmits images to a screen) will then be carried out, which will enable you to see the wax in your ear canals before MicroSuction is performed.
What are the costs?
We charge £60 per consultation which includes earwax removal for both ears.
(please note that if no wax is present there is a £25 charge for consultation and appointment slot)
We have a dedicated wax removal room with a fully adjustable ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) chair, binocular microscope, Video Otoscopy and Tympanometry.
