We use Microsuction as our preferred option for Wax Removal as it is cleaner and more efficient. It
is also more comfortable than irrigation for most people.
The main benefit of Microsuction is that it is quick. You will not be told to put olive oil or sodium bicarbonate ear drops in your ears for two weeks before your appointment ( *please see line below), the procedure itself is normally significantly quicker than irrigation. It is also the only solution for people with known middle ear conditions or known perforations.
The cost is £60 for one ear £90 for both. To book an appointment please call 01273 689800 for Brighton, Hove and Hayward Heath and 01903243300 for Goring-By-Sea
*Our recommendation if you have wax is still to put olive oil or sodium bicarbonate solution ear drops in your ears as even if only put in a day before as it will aid removal.
Irrigation (syringing) is an option that we still have available but is only used if someone requests it or if it is in a minority of cases more suitable. Preparation is key to successful wax removal and olive oil or sodium bicarbonate ear drops must be used for 7-10 days prior to removal. The cost is £60 for one ear and £90 for both.
If you are aware of any middle ear conditions or have a known perforation irrigation is not available.
In some cases we may use manual removal with a Jobs on horn to to compliment either microsuction or Irrigation
