Vista Health offer private Ear Microsuction for safe removal of wax and debris from the ear canal. Microsuction is a procedure performed by using a binocular operating microscope to remove the impacted wax from your ear.
You can also refer yourself, so no need for a GP referral to book an appointment.

What is Ear Wax?
Ear wax (Cerumen) is a natural secretion which forms a protective layer on the ear canal skin. The quantity of ear wax produced varies from one individual to another. The presence of ear wax is natural and helps protect our ears from germs providing lubrication to the ear canals to prevent ear irritation or itchiness.
However, symptoms such as earache (oltalgia), ear fullness, reduced hearing, itchiness and tinnitus could be caused by a build up of ear wax.
What is Ear Microsuction?
In a private ear microsuction procedure with Vista Health, we use a suction method to remove ear wax or foreign bodies from the ear canals. It is safer and more comfortable than other ear wax removal methods such as irrigation or ear syringing.
The audiologist gently inserts a small suction probe into the ear and uses low suction pressure to remove the ear wax. The procedure is performed under magnification with a bright LED light giving a clear view of the ear canal and eardrum.
Advantages of ear microsuction over syringing:
- Microsuction does not involve flushing the ear canal with water. It is therefore a much more hygenic method of removing ear wax.
- Ear microsuction is safe for patients with a perforated ear drum or mastoid cavity. A medical assesment is always performed prior to treatment.
- You can expect instant results following the procedure.
Vista Health offers Microsuction ear wax removal at various locations throughout the UK: Hornchurch, Southampton, Royton, Peterborough and Hampshire. This price is the same whether the procedure is done on one ear or both ears, in the same appointment.
To carry out the ear microsuction efficiently our qualified audiologists in London and the other UK sites will be using a low-pressure sterile suction probe to remove the ear wax with absolute accuracy.
