What is Ear microsuction?

A simple procedure that uses a small suction device to gently get the wax out of your ear.

While ear wax is a natural substance, which helps to protect the ears and acts as an anti-fungal and anti-bacterial property, and keeps the ears lubricated to reduce itchiness. However, when the ears become blocked, this could cause hearing loss, aural fullness, earache, tinnitus, and irritations. At this point, ear wax removal is beneficial.

This is much safer and more comfortable than all other forms of ear cleaning, including syringing and irrigation. it’s the most preferred ear wax removal by patients. Microsuction ear wax removal is a dry and hygienic procedure that does not require any drops, gels, and fluids. Without the presence of liquids, there’s less risk of getting an infection or allergic reaction.

How long does the procedure take?

The length of your treatment will depend on the level of blockage & if you need treatment on one or both ears.


Does it hurt?

Microsuction should not cause any pain or discomfort. However, due to the sensitive area inside your ear extra care is taken to avoid touching the surface in order to prevent discomfort. The procedure may be slightly uncomfortable initially. But most people report no discomfort during the procedure.

What are the benefit of Ear Microsuction?

Instant results

Once the procedure is over, you’ll instantly notice a difference especially if the ear wax has interfered with your hearing. The entire removal only takes a few minutes and follow-up visits are rarely needed.

No required preparation

Unlike with ear syringing or ear irrigation, there’s no prep work involved. Microsuction effectively extracts both hard and soft impacted ear wax without the need for softening ear drops. 

Safe for existing perforations

Microsuction is safe for patients with perforated eardrum or grommet, mastoid cavity, cleft palate, and other previous ear infections.

Pinpoint accuracy

Microsuction involves the use of a special microscope, which provides a complete view of the ear canal. This allows doctors to work safely and precisely.
