Micro Suctioning

Micro suction is a state-of-the-art ear wax removal procedure that can be useful for people with wax occlusion from regular ear wax build up.  This technique allows the clinician to look in the ear canal in great detail and use a very fine sterile suction device at low pressure to remove the wax.

This process of ear wax removal is a little bit like using a tiny vacuum cleaner inside the ear to remove the wax.

If the wax is particularly hard, we may need to use other instruments as part of the ear micro suction procedure, such as Jobson Horne probes, mini hooks, or micro forceps.

Boutique Hearing can offer micro suctioning for cerumen management at all our clinic locations, so if you have patients that require removal of wax, Boutique Hearing will be able to assist them.

Ear micro suction

  • Safer.
  • Faster.
  • Better tolerated.
  • More effective.
  • Precise view of the eardrum and canal.

What’s more, it typically doesn’t require weeks of waiting for ear drops to soften the wax before it can be removed.  Ear micro suction may even be performed on the same day the appointment is booked.
