EARWAX REMOVAL IN THE CLINIC
Visit us at Lindfield Audiology
How the procedure works
We will take a detailed history to fully understand your ear health.
We use a manual wax removal method under direct vision using a head-worn microscope system fitted with a bright light.
A small funnel is placed gently in your outer ear canal to protect your ear and gain a good view of your ear canal and ear drum.
During microsuction, a small suction device is inserted slowly into your ear, and attached to the wax in order to remove it. This machine is like a tiny vacuum cleaner and it is normal if you hear a loud "whooshing" sound during this procedure.
Depending on the type of wax or other debris in your ear, the audiologist may need to use a curette or forceps instead of microsuction.
The cost for an earwax removal session is $150.
No referral is required.
Unfortunately there is no Medicare rebate for this procedure.
