Ear Wax Microsuction FAQ
Ear microsuction entails the use of a gentle vacuum machine to leave the ear free of wax. A microscope allows us to see clearly into the ear to carry out the procedure. The end results for the patient are better hearing and cleaner ears.
A suction device is used to remove the earwax under a microscope. A small, thin wand is placed inside the ear canal to carefully suction the wax away.
Microsuction should not cause any pain or discomfort. However, due to the sensitive nature of the ear canal, extra care is taken to avoid touching the surface so as to prevent discomfort. No anaesthetic or analgesia is generally used to perform the procedure. The suction can sound relatively noisy. If you have an ear infection or inflammation in the ear canal, the procedure may be slightly uncomfortable.
This is a very quick procedure and usually only takes around 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
An otoscopic examination is performed before microsuction, which provides video of the inner ear and will detect a wax build-up. If no wax is found, the procedure will not be performed. However, if wax is present, the procedure will go ahead.
