Reshape Your Thinking About Soft Tissue

The Galatea Difference

Galatea scaffolds are bioabsorbable, monofilament and constructed of poly-4-hydroxybutyate (P4HB™) - an advanced, biologically derived polymer.

Our names have changed, but our products have not. GalaSHAPE 3D is now GalaFLEX 3D. GalaFORM 3D is now GalaFLEX 3DR.

The Galatea collection of scaffolds offers a unique combination of properties that are optimal for soft tissue reinforcement in plastic and reconstructive surgery:

Biologically Derived
Produced by a safe biological fermentation process, standard in pharmaceutical production. [12, 17]
Monofilament
Designed to minimize risk of infection and encourage a natural healing response. [3, 15]
Strong
Provides a lattice for new tissue ingrowth and regeneration resulting in tissue 3-4x stronger than native tissue. [9, 16, 19]
Bioabsorbable
Naturally broken down to CO2 and H2O and absorption is essentially complete by 18-24 months. [1,12]
3-Dimensional
The first and only formed absorbable scaffold designed to fit and uplift the body's natural shape, providing easier placement and reduced procedure time. [1]
Predictable Performance
Promotes healing and stability due to rapid integration and a predictable strength and absorption profile.[1,2]
