How Can Recovery & Comfort Pillows Benefit My Healing Journey?
As you walk through the Recovery & Comfort Pillows department of the Store, you will notice that there are several major types of pillows to consider for your healing journey. Our first area consists of Elevation Wedges & Pillows, which are specially designed with an incline to provide proper alignment and to keep your affected swollen areas (facial, upper, mid, or lower body areas) comfortably elevated in an angle that helps reduce swelling and enables optimal blood circulation to all the vital healing areas. Depending on the swollen area(s), you may need to keep such area(s) elevated. After Buttocks Augmentation, you should rest and sleep on your stomach or side continuously in an inclined position (25-45 degree angle) for the initial days of post-op or as long as major swelling remains. Resting in elevation enables optimal blood circulation and helps reduce swelling. There are knee and leg wedges and lifts that also serve the purpose of keeping swollen areas (particularly the legs, thighs, calves, and feet area) comfortably elevated in an angle that is needed for reducing swelling. Many patients find bed wedges to be a superior and more comfortable elevation solution compared to putting oneself above pillows on a bed. The advantages of wedges compared to pillows are that they are sturdy, you do not have to worry about slipping off as you would with pillows, you have far less tension and stress on your body, and you do not have to periodically rearrange the wedge as you would with pillows that shift around and fall.
The Neck Pillows and Knee & Leg Pillows sections of the store are comfort pillows that are specifically designed to reduce tension and discomfort when resting and to help you have the pain-free rest that is crucial to healing. Due to the need to rest and sleep (often in an elevated position) during the initial phase of recovery, having to remain in the same position for long periods of time causes patients to experience all kinds of muscle tension and aches in areas such as the neck, shoulders, back, arms, buttocks, knees, and legs. This leads to patients having difficulties resting and sleeping properly during the recovery and is a cause for frustration. For this reason, products such as the U-Shaped pillow, leg separator, knee and leg wedge and lifts can maximize your comfort during the healing journey.
Many of the pillows in the store are made of memory foam, which provides the highest standard of comfort during recovery from a cosmetic procedure. For your convenience, we have created a Memory Foam Pillows section. Each memory foam pillow that is featured in our Store is made of a high quality, durable memory foam material that conforms to the body’s shape. The memory foam layer of the pillow responds to the body's temperature through the transfer of body heat, resulting in a pillow surface that is shaped like your body. You can find pillows in all the above categories that are made of memory foam, from memory foam bed pillow wedges of various sizes, memory foam wedges with a built-in neck roll, memory foam head and neck pillow wedges, memory foam leg pillow wedges, and other types of memory foam pillow products.
Back & Lumbar Support Pillows
Back and Lumbar Pillows & Cushions provide lower back support and reduce the strain on the back. For patients needing to rest for prolonged periods of time, As non-stop resting and sleeping is required during the initial phase of recovery from different cosmetic procedures, having to remain in such a position for long periods causes patients to experience all kinds of muscle tension and aches and discomfort in the back. For this reason, a back/lumbar pillow can be a real lifesaver by enabling you to have the pain-free rest that is crucial for healing.
