A snug fit around your stoma is essential, in order to protect your skin from the harmful effects of output from the stoma.
For an optimum fit around your stoma
Ostomy scissors are designed to facilitate easy cutting of an ostomy baseplate to the exact size required:
- Curved scissor blades - to facilitate circular cuts
- The upper blade has small ‘teeth’ - ensuring that the baseplate does not slip while being cut, while keeping the scissors in place. This makes it much easier to control, ensuring a smoothly cut line.
- The lower blade has a rounded end - guiding the circular cutting and avoiding damage to the pouch of a one-piece system.
