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.

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.
