Usually micro suction does not need pre-treatment with drops but two days of Earol (clinically treated olive oil) is the best preparation. An audiologist will examine your ear using a binaural microscope (either fixed or with loupes glasses) and, using a fine low-pressure suction device, safely remove the blockage. Also, using a video otoscope we will show you the condition of the ear before and after the treatment.
Microsuction earwax removal is undertaken using a microscope and a medical suction device, hence the term microsuction. A very thin wand type fitting is fitted to the end of the suction tube which allows the professional to gently remove the earwax from your canal.

Microsuction is the safest and most comfortable method of earwax removal, no liquids are used during the procedure. Which means that there is no fuss or mess during the procedure. The fact that we can clearly see the ear canal and more importantly exactly what we are doing, makes it an exceptionally safe procedure. It is an especially comfortable process and it is usually undertaken in a few minutes making it a same day service.
Using our services ensures that you have your earwax removed safely, quickly and by a person you can trust. The process is usually over in a few minutes and the majority of people find it easy and comfortable. The process is the safest way to remove earwax as the professional can see everything they are doing during the removal.
Unlike ear syringing or ear irrigation, where ear wax is flushed out without a view of the canal, during microsuction, the canal and the ear wax is being directly viewed with the microscope whilst it is being removed. This makes the procedure much quicker, safer and comfortable for the patient. Other benefits of this type of ear wax removal include:
The hearing healthcare professional has an excellent view of the earwax and the ear canal and they can always see what they are doing. Making it safe for you.
With microsuction, there may not be the need to apply ear drops for wax beforehand, which is the case with ear syringing or ear irrigation. However, using ear drops can still help in the removal.
No water is being flushed into the ear canal as happens with ear syringing or ear irrigation. Instead the procedure is performed dry significantly reducing the risk of infection.
Unlike ear syringing and ear irrigation, it is safe for people who have a perforated eardrum or mastoid cavity, in addition to any foreign object that may be lodged inside the ear canal
