Microsuction Earwax Removal

micro suction ear wax removal

Simple, Clean, Safe.

Micro suction ear wax removal is undertaken using a medical suction unit and something to allow the professional to see clearly what he or she is doing. This is normally a microscope, loupe or endoscope. A thin suction is attached to the suction machine that can be comfortably place inside the ear canal. A skilled practitioner will only make contact with the wax and not the patient's ear canal walls or ear drum.


Usually microsuction does not need pre-treatment with drops, however, 1 or 2 days of olive oil is generally considered the best preparation. Whilst examining your ear through a visual aid, the professional (which should be an audiologist, doctor, nurse or hearing care assistant) will safely remove the blockage in a pain-free movement. You should also be shown the condition of your ear before and after the treatment.

Trusted Professionals: Only carefully selected qualified and experienced audiologists, doctors, nurses and hearing care assistants with additional training in aural micro suction ear wax removal are used by the Ear Wax Clinic.

The Benefits of Our Micro Suction Ear Cleaning

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 technique 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 are being directly viewed 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:

A good view of the ear

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.

No ear drops needed

With microsuction, there may not be the need to apply ear drops beforehand, which is the case with ear syringing and ear irrigation. However, using ear drops can still help in the removal.

No messy water used

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.

Safe for perforations

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

"Nice and Friendly"


"Contacted for an appointment for my elderly mum yesterday and spoke to the nice audiologist from Fleet. He arranged to come and visit her at her home today. He was really nice and friendly, putting her at her ease. The process was easily done and there was no discomfort or mess (as with ear syringing) Her ears are now unblocked and my dog and I don't need to vacate the house when she wants to watch the television!! LOL Thank you Jason!"
