Product Description & Benefits: The Ear Pillow - Head Positioner is great for people recovering from a facial/ear injury or surgery or for use in 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. For recovery purposes, the ear/head 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 positioner stabilizes head in lateral, prone or supine position. 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.
Beyond using the Ear Pillow-Head Positioner 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.
Instructions For Use: 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.
