As the name suggests, the flat skin barrier is completely flat without any bulge. It lies flat on the skin and is used when the peristomal skin is flat without any folds or creases and the stoma protrudes at least a quarter-inch or more above the skin. Flat ostomy wafers are flexible and accommodate the contours of one’s body. The flat wafers complement the slightly protruding stoma that empties perfectly into the bag without leakage. These skin wafers are ideal for regular-shaped stomas and eliminate excess pressure on the tender area.
These barriers typically work well for many ostomates. However, if you have a flat or retracted stoma, a flat barrier may not be a good choice for you. The stoma output may leak underneath the skin barrier and cause skin irritation and damage. Flat skin barriers come in pre-cut, cut-to-fit, standard wear, and extended wear varieties.
