Ear Wax Removal

Struggling with blocked, dry, itchy or painful ears? You may have a build-up of excessive ear wax. This can be quickly and easily resolved with professional ear wax removal.


MY Hearing Clinic offers the safest and most effective type of ear wax removal available – microsuction ear wax removal, performed by our highly skilled clinicians.

About Ear Wax

Ear wax (cerumen) is a natural substance produced by the ear which is important to our ear’s functions. Our ears self-clean with wax naturally being pushed out so generally, ear wax should be left alone. However, for some, excess build-up can occur requiring professional ear wax removal.

A build-up of wax can lead to pain and discomfort, and sometimes, slight hearing loss. It is important to remove any old wax that is causing these issues, removal can provide immediate relief.

Ear wax removal should never be performed at home. We understand it is tempting to try to remove the blockage using a small item such as a cotton bud but this can cause further damage and exacerbate the problem. Ear wax removal should always be performed by a professional in order to guarantee a safe procedure and effective results.

How We Can Help

MY Hearing Clinic offers the safest and most effective type of ear wax removal available – microsuction. The gold standard technique in ear wax removal, it is quick, safe, painless and doesn’t involve putting liquid into your ear.

Our qualified clinicians carry out microsuction with precision and accuracy using a gentle suction device, removing build-up and providing instant relief.

The Process

This service is for adults ages 18 years and over.

Important Tip Before Your Visit: It’s always a good idea to use olive oil drops for a few days prior to your appointment. This is to soften any wax in the ear, especially if you are aware of a longstanding issue with solid ear wax build-up.

Your appointment will last around 30 minutes, however in some cases it can be much shorter than this.

We endeavour to remove all ear wax during your appointment. However, if this isn’t possible we will see you again free of charge.

Our trained professional will carry out a consultation with you to ensure there are no medical reasons why microsuction might not be right for you.

The clinician will outline any risks to having the procedure performed and discuss consent to treatment.

We will examine your ears using an otoscope, this special magnification tool allows us visibility to ensure the wax in your ears is soft enough to be removed using microsuction.

If the wax is soft, the clinician will gently insert the suction tube and probe into your ear to remove the wax.

So helpful and reassuring. My site is amazing. The whole process was so smooth, I understood everything that I was told and knew of any risks and potential side effects before agreeing to anything. Couldn't be happier.

I recently had permanent lens procedure carried out by Mr Ghosh. Having glasses as a child and contact lenses for many years, this has been an absolute revelation for me. Mr Ghosh was absolutely brilliant and very professional from the start. All the staff are lovely and especially like to thank Dianne, Anita and the team. This has changed my life for the better thanks.

I visited the My Hearing Clinic knowing I needed a hearing assessment but thinking it was just a build up of wax. It came as a shock that I heard a hearing loss which needed addressing. The service I received from Andrew was outstanding! He explained my hearing loss and went through all my options. He recognised that it was a lot of information to take in so made a follow up appointment, giving me sufficient time to think about what I wanted to do. From start to finish the service has been excellent, efficient, professional and friendly from the moment you walk through the door and meet Lee. The clinic is well located, parking on site, high standard of cleanliness. Definitely a recommendation from me. Thank you!
