Product Description & Benefits: The Convoluted Ear Pillow enables a patient who has had surgical incisions done in the ears area (due to a face lift or neck lift) to sleep on her/his side without experiencing discomfort in the healing ear. The foam design of the ear pillow raises the ear from the bed and allows the ear to essentially "float" and not have any pressure or friction from the mattress or pillow. The hole in the middle of the pillow allows the ear to fit inside with ease and enables you to sleep on your side even if your ears may still be sore due to surgery. Patients often experience ear soreness and pain when trying to sleep or rest on their side due to the fact that incisions were made in front and behind the ears. Ear soreness and pain may continue for weeks, 1 month, or longer following a face lift. As a result, patients are not able to sleep on their side and need to continue sleeping on their backs until ear issues are no longer present. Ear soreness is frustrating to anyone for whom sleeping on one's back is not the way she/he naturally sleeps. For this reason, the ear pillow can be a real godsend and save a patient from sleepless nights by enabling them to sleep soundly on their side and not worry about their achy ears. The pillow is donut-shaped and is made of convoluted polyurethane foam. The measurements for the outside of this pillow are 8"(long)x 5"(wide)x 3"(height).

Beyond using the Convoluted Ear Pillow during your recovery, this product is a great addition to your daily life whenever you have to be in bed for a long period of time and want to enjoy side sleeping without getting bed sores around the ear area that can occur when resting in the same position for a prolonged period of time.

Other Comfort Pillows: Since the Convoluted Ear Pillow is often used to enable a patient to sleep on her/his side, putting a Leg Separator pillow between your knees will make sleeping on your side more pleasant. The Leg Separator provides a cushion between your bony knees and helps you avoid strain that can otherwise build up in the knees due to staying in the same resting position for a long period of time.

Instructions For Use: Place the Convoluted Ear Pillow on top of your regular pillow and gently put your head down so the ear goes inside the hole. Be sure to wrap the pillow in a cover (see below for tips on creating a bed cover). You should tuck the pillow cover deep into the hole so that there is enough room inside there for your ear to comfortably fit in without friction. For added comfort, you can make a hole for your ear in the pillow cover. Following a facial cosmetic procedure, the ear pillow is only to be used once you are permitted to sleep on your side. You can usually return to sleeping on your side once your sutures and/or staples around the ears have been removed and upon your doctor consenting to sleeping on your side again. However, if you have the ear pillow you may be able to get your doctor to allow you to sleep on your side earlier than usual.

Healthy Tip: The Convoluted Ear Pillow should be wrapped in a pillow cover. You can use one of your own if one can fit well or adjust the pillow case if it's too big for the pillow. Alternatively, you can create a makeshift pillowcase. It is recommended to use a soft material, such as cotton or satin so that your sensitive ears will be comfy. As far as the hole for the ear, you should tuck the pillowcase deep into the hole so that there is enough room inside there for your ear to comfortably fit in without friction. For added comfort, you can make a hole for your ear in the pillow cover.

Applicable Procedures: All Face lift surgery types, Neck Lift.

Not for me!
By CelesteGreene, October 2, 2012

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? no benefits

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? too stiff

Review: The foam is not very soft & was partially yellowed (discolored). It was too harsh on my face. I couldn't use it. Maybe it will work for you, but not for me! And it can't be returned.

Ear Pillow
By Janiceruth, July 8, 2012

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? My ear doesn't hurt anymore. I can get a good nights sleep.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? Needs a cover on it.

Review: When it arrived I thought this isn't going to work. I sleep on that ear & wake up every morning & my ear hurts. Since sleeping on the pillow, my ear doesn't hurt anymore. I do agree it needs a cover. Good purchase.

By Rick-C, May 27, 2011

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Helps take pressure off the ear redistributing it, Price is right to test all concepts

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? I would like to have, or I'll make a washable cotton case for it

Review: I tried it inside the pillow, but I much prefer to set it 'on top' of it and then rest my ear into it. I also sliced it sideways to make it half as thick resulting in less (side of head) pressure for the way I use it, wh...(read more)

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? When not used I don't sleep. All I need to say.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? $20.00 may be high. However not a large market.

Review: When received, I said, " this is a joke". But then I used it. Well, it is not a joke!! First night of rest in 14 days since a procedure to my ear. Requires a "pocket" to be formed in the pillow case. For best result...(read more)
