What is Microsuction?

Microsuction is a modern and highly effective method for earwax removal that has gained popularity in recent years. This procedure involves using a delicate suction device to gently remove excess earwax and debris from the ear canal. Unlike traditional ear syringing methods, microsuction is considered safer, more efficient, and less invasive.

How does it work?

The clinician will have a look in your ears using an otoscope, which is a magnification tool with a light on it. This allows us to ensure the wax in your ears is soft enough to be removed using microsuction. If the wax is soft, the clinician will gently insert the suction tube and probe into your ear to remove the wax. If the wax is too hard to remove, you could be advised to use wax softening drops such as olive oil or sodium bicarbonate before booking you in for a second appointment to remove the wax. Please ensure you speak to a healthcare professional before using wax softening drops.
