The process involves the removal of ear wax using a high magnification microscope to get the best view inside the ear. This microscope is a small, very thin, steel fitting for maximum comfort attached to a suction pipe.

The expert clinician will start with an examination of your ear using a binaural microscope called a head loupe (magnifying glasses). Once the clinician has a clear view of the ear canal, the ear wax is carefully removed using low suction.

Microsuction is an effective, painless procedure which will only take a few minutes and most people come out of the treatment with no reviews of discomfort.

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 in Gravesend?

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 Gravesend?

When you travel from Gravesend 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.

How long will my appointment be?

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 Gravesend?

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

The only thing you should consider preparing for is your journey down from Bexley 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.

What does ear microsuction cost in Gravesend?

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

Will microsuction definitely restore my hearing?

While hearing loss can be due to blockage of the ear canal by ear wax, it is not the sole reason people experience temporary, sudden or prolonged, permanent hearing loss.

Microsuction will remove the majority of ear wax, if not all, and so can only restore your hearing to whatever level it was at before you got an ear wax blockage.

How often can I Visit From Gravesend 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 and is different for each individual.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with ear wax removal Gravesend?

When performed by a trained professional, ear wax removal is generally safe. 

It is crucial to seek ear wax removal services from reputable clinics staffed by qualified professionals to minimise any potential risks.
