What is microsuction ear wax removal?

Experts widely agree that ear microsuction is the safest method of ear wax removal, and ear microsuction offers several advantages over syringing or irrigation:

  • Microsuction can still be used where an ear drum perforation exists
  • It is safe to use at the time of an external or middle ear infection
  • Risks are comparatively lower than with ear irrigation or syringing
  • It’s carried out under high magnification for more detailed viewing and precise treatment. 

Microsuction ear wax removal is considered the gold standard of removing ear wax and debris, helping Customers to be free of blockages and discomfort.

As so many GPs no longer provide this service, there is increased demand for private clinics who do. People in Essex with blocked ears are coming to Welling Ear Wax clinic for our gold standard service.

What is the process for microsuction ear wax removal?

Ear microsuction is the removal of ear wax using a high magnification microscope and a small, very thin, steel fitting attached to a suction pipe.

The clinician will examine the ear using a binaural microscope called a head loupe (magnifying glasses). With a clear view of the ear canal, the wax is carefully removed using low suction.

This is the most common way to remove ear wax build up from the ear canal due to its effectiveness, painlessness and safety. The whole process takes just a few minutes, and most people report no discomfort during the procedure.

Excellent wax removal service by Mr Dhesi. I will recommend your clinic to my family and friends.
Great walk in service. Friendly and efficient staff. Many thanks
Travelled here from Orpington because it was the only place in South London that was able to find me a same day appointment on a Friday. Parked right outside in road for free. Friendly reception, taken through to audiology room, seated in fully adjustable chair for examination and ear wax removal from both ears. Prior to visit, I had used Earol ear spray for 7 days. The vacuum procedure tself was completely painless, not even uncomfortable, and all done in 5 minutes, with both ears completely cleared of substantial amounts of wax. Overall result is that my hearing has been restored, and I am very very pleased with result. Highly recommend.

I had been almost totally deaf in my left ear for some time with pressure in my head and ringing noises. Otex Express ear drops over two weeks had no effect. My local GP said that I had hard impacted wax in my ear. I took her advice and used pharmaceutical grade olive oil drops for two weeks to soften the wax then to come back for a NHS referral for free private treatment. However, when I did this the receptionist said that I would have to wait until January 2024 just to get the referral. I could not bear being deaf over Christmas and the New Year so I contacted the Welling Ear Clinic. Des fitted me in the same day. He cleaned out my left ear and also found a large piece of wax in my other ear. Total cost only £60.00 for the two ears. What good value. Well worth paying so I can now hear again. Well done Des!

Ear Wax Microsuction FAQ

What is microsuction ear wax removal in Essex?

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.

How is microsuction performed at your clinic near essex?

When you travel from Essex to our clinic, we’ll make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. When you do, 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.

Does microsuction hurt?

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.

How long does the procedure take?

This is a very quick procedure and usually only takes around 15 to 30 minutes to complete.

Do I need to prepare for the microsuction procedure near Essex?

No preparation is required for micro-suction to be performed.

The only thing you should consider preparing for is your journey down from Essex to avoid any traffic.

However, it is recommended to use olive oil based ear drops for a couple of days before the procedure to soften the wax. If you have an ear infection (external or internal) it is recommended to have this treated by a GP before micro-suction as these conditions can make the procedure uncomfortable. Alternatively, the ear canal can be suctioned to help clear up the infection.

Who can perform the microsuction procedure?

A General Practitioner (GP) is unlikely to perform micro-suction and will most often refer you to a Pharmacist, ENT or Audiologist, all of whom are qualified to perform the procedure. You can make an appointment directly with us and we should be able to accommodate you within a day or two. Or simply walk in to our clinic and we should be able to carry out the procedure right away.

What does ear microsuction cost in Essex?

The cost for the procedure is £40 for one ear and £60 for both ears.

How do I know if I need microsuction?

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.

Is ear wax microsuction safe?

The procedure is considered to be entirely safe although, as per any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with micro-suction. Some dizziness may occur for a short time after micro-suction. Tinnitus may result from the procedure but should dissipate naturally. Damage to the ear canal is very rare.

Can I have microsuction if I have had ear surgery?

If the ear has healed entirely post surgery, micro-suction is entirely safe for patients who have had ear surgery in the past.

How often can I Visit From Essex For Treatment?

Wax is constantly created by the ears and can build-up in the ear canal again. Micro-suction can be performed as often as necessary to remove excess ear wax.

What is the difference between traditional ear irrigation and microsuction?

Experts have a clear view on Microsuction. Based on studies, it is the safest method of ear wax removal, resulting in the lowest risk of complications.

No procedure is 100% risk free, but Microsuction offers clear advantages over ear irrigation:

  • For tympanic membrane (eardrum) perforation, microsuction is recommended
  • if the ear has an infection of the external or middle ear, microsuction is the only technique safe to perform wax or debris removal;
  • microsuction is a more comfortable process, completed in only a few minutes;
  • no liquids used during the process;
  • no ear drops or pre-treatment required
  • pain free
