Ear Syringing? No Ear Suction
Many people still call us for ear syringing, and most people seem to know that is the traditional way to clean ears of wax. However, ear syringing is messy, can be dangerous and often doesn’t get all the ear wax out. Suction is safe, in fact it is one of the safest ear cleaning methods, it is quick and there is no mess or fuss.
Micro-Suction Ear Cleaning explained
“Micro” – the microscope is used for a detailed view of the ear canal showing the size, shape and placement of the blockage. This high definition close-up helps us to understand the nature of the wax blockage and rules out any medical complications (see below). Using video otoscopy, we can show you how much wax is present. This also allows us to safely assess your ear and to decide the method needed to remove wax. “Suction” – the suction pump is used to gently but efficiently extract wax via a probe tube.
Continuing with the microscope and with a probe tube, the wax is gradually, safely and efficiently removed. No pressure and no water is introduced into the ear canal.
Depending on the degree of blockage and how long the wax has been stuck in the ear Micro-Suction ear wax removal typically takes 5-10 minutes per ear. We will then discuss ways to minimise future build up. As part of our ongoing care we keep a stock of ear wax removal drops which you can pick up any time.
The cost for this service is £35 for a consultation or £79 for the removal of wax (one or both ears.)
Please Note: In some situations we may decide that referral to an ENT consultant, with their specialist experience and medical background, would be in your best interests. These situations include, but are not limited to… Excessive earache, Infections with blood present, history of eardrum perforation, distressing tinnitus, children and young adults up to the age of 18.
