By definition, Microsuction is the method of ear wax and foreign body removal used by the majority of Ear, Nose and Throat Outpatient Clinics.
Methods of earwax removal such as syringing have a chance at being successful, although it can have its problems. Microsuction ear wax removal is known as the ‘gold standard’ treatment method of wax removal and is completely painless. A practitioner can view both the ear canal and the ear wax during the treatment, making it much more efficient than alternative methods of wax removal. Microsuction has an almost 100% success rate with minimal oil installation needed.

The ear wax and the ear canal remain in clear vision for the practitioner throughout the procedure and this improves efficiency of the clearance and significantly reduces risk.

Earwax (proper name Cerumen) consists of shed skin cells, hair, and the secretions of the ceruminous and sebaceous glands of the outside ear canal. Although it may not seem like it, earwax is a very useful substance that helps to keep our ears healthy.
Earwax coats the skin lining of the ear canal and carries debris such as dirt, hair, dead cells and out of the ear. Aside from this, earwax acts as a protective barrier for the eardrum, which is an important part of the ear.
Usually, earwax will do its job naturally and with minimum problems. Despite this, there are occasions where the ear will simply produce too much earwax, which can lead to some complications.
