What is Ear Suction?

Ear suction is a procedure that removes earwax and other debris from the ear canal using a small, thin tube attached to a suction device.

Why is Ear Suction done?

Ear suction is done to clear the ear canal of any blockage that may cause symptoms such as hearing loss, earache, tinnitus, itching, or infection. Ear suction is also done to prepare the ear for other procedures, such as ear irrigation, ear syringing, or ear surgery.

How is Ear Suction performed?

Ear suction is performed by a trained health professional, such as an audiologist, a nurse, or a doctor. The health professional will examine your ear using a microscope or a camera to locate the blockage. They will then insert the suction tube into your ear and gently remove the wax or debris. The procedure usually takes 15 to 20 minutes and is painless.

What are the benefits of Ear Suction?

Ear suction has many benefits compared to other methods of earwax removal, such as ear drops, ear irrigation, or ear candling. Ear suction is:

  • Safe and effective - Ear suction does not introduce any liquid or heat into the ear, which can cause damage, infection, or burns. Ear suction also does not push the wax deeper into the ear, which can worsen the blockage or cause perforation of the eardrum.
  • Quick and comfortable - Ear suction does not require any preparation, such as using ear drops or softening agents before the procedure. Ear suction also does not cause any discomfort, pressure, or dizziness during or after the procedure.
  • Precise and thorough - Ear suction allows the health professional to see the ear canal clearly and remove the wax or debris accurately and completely.
