Micro-Suction Ear Wax Removal

Ear Wax Removal in Werribee

Our doctors offer ear wax removal in our Werribee based medical clinic.


We perform ear wax removal after assessing your symptoms and examining your ear canals to see if you are a suitable candidate. If you are, our doctors will inform you about the process and answer your questions so you can make an informed decision on whether the procedure is right for you. 


We use a gentle method called micro suction ear wax removal. 

Micro suction ear wax removal

Micro-suction ear wax removal is a relatively new alternative to older ear wax removal methods such as ear syringing.  Micro-suction ear wax removal gently removes wax build-up from your ear canals through vacuum suction. The procedure is usually quick, clean, and less invasive than other methods. 


It is our preferred method of ear wax removal for many reasons, including:


  • It’s less invasive than other more traditional methods

  • Generally produces less mess than other methods, such as ear syringing that flushes water through the ear.

  • Our patients often report that it’s more comfortable than other methods. 

  • On completion, our patients often report that they notice a difference in their symptoms 

  • It’s suitable for a wide range of people, including those with perforated eardrums (please note that our doctors will always check that you are indeed a suitable candidate).

  • It’s usually a more hygienic option due to no water entering the ear, reducing the risk of infection.

  • Gentle and generally more precise.


Symptoms of ear wax build up

It’s important to note that ear wax is an important and normal part of healthy ear function. The presence of ear wax helps keep your ears healthy and clean. 


Ear wax build up is only considered a medical condition if it is causing discomfort or unpleasant symptoms.


An excess of ear wax can lead to a range of problems with your ears and hearing, including but not limited to:


  • Dizziness

  • Tinnitus - a ringing sound in one or both ears

  • Hearing issues

  • Earaches or infections

  • Itchiness (likely caused by an infection)

  • A feeling of fullness in the ear

  • Discharge


If you are experiencing any of the above, removing the build-up of wax from your ear canals may reduce your symptoms.


Your doctor will examine your ears to discern whether or not you may benefit from ear wax removal. 


Do I need ear wax removal?

The symptoms of ear wax build up alone aren’t enough to indicate that you are in need of ear wax removal. The symptoms caused by ear wax buildup can also be caused by several other reasons or conditions. As doctors professionally trained in ear wax removal we will first assess whether or not we believe that you may benefit from the procedure before commencing any kind of ear wax removal.


If we believe that your symptoms are not caused by ear wax build up, we will further investigate and, if needed, refer you to a specialist.


We will also further investigate if your symptoms persist after receiving the procedure.
