Ostomy Devices . . . .
. . . with an Ileostomy
Nearly all 2-piece devices have a connecting flange that holds liquids around the stoma.
When lying down, that barrier is nearly horizontal and the stoma cut-out is fully submerged, which helps liquids to penetrate.
The ileostomy passes liquids that should be kept off your skin.

That teaspoon is from flange diameter and height, minus the stoma space.  A 50mm flange with a 25mm stoma holds 2 teaspoons.
The #10504 is just one example of the type flange with every 2-piece brand tried, except this no-flange version shown next.

Ileostomy brings liquids which can help make a leak.  The liquid can seep under barrier and be trapped, contacting your skin and forcing a barrier replacement.
