In this time of unprecedented change, we have the opportunity to respond to uncertainty with our best, to hold true to our core values, and to move forward with confidence, purpose, and strength.

At Galatea, we have long believed that real strength starts from within. Over the past six months, we have held true to this core value and transformed our branding to more closely reflect the inner strength, beauty, and confidence that your patients desire. After all, predictable performance, steadfast support, and strength at the surgical repair site are why the Galatea Collection of P4HBTM Scaffolds were developed.

We are very excited to introduce new logos for Galatea Surgical and the GalaFLEX Collection of Scaffolds. Based on input from you, our customer, the new images are modeled in health and beauty, speaking to the elegance, optimism, and expertise inherent in every plastic and reconstructive surgical procedure.

The new Galatea Surgical logo builds upon our existing brand-identity by maintaining the familiar typeface that honors the Greek myth at the heart of the Galatea Surgical brand. The robust breadth and architecturally inspired letters embody the strength and stability that Galatea scaffolds provide.

The new GalaFLEX image was designed to be familiar to those who know and trust the existing GalaFLEX brand, with the recognizable GalaFLEX pink and a simplified tagline “P4HB Scaffold”.

Presenting Two New Names

At the same time, the product names of our 3D products have changed. GalaSHAPE® 3D and GalaFORM® 3D will now be known as GalaFLEX 3D™ and GalaFLEX 3DR™ respectively. It's important to understand that other than the ink on the package, these scaffolds remain the exact same products that you know, trust, and use. We are making these changes to simplify how you describe and educate your patients on the GalaFLEX scaffold collection.

Nothing is more important to us than our long-standing partnership with the plastic surgery community. We are embracing this time and making the commitment to continue to strengthen our connection with you. No matter what changes come our way, Galatea’s greatest strength will always be the important relationship we have with you, our partners.

You should expect to see the brand changes being rolled out over the next several weeks. We are excited by this new direction and look forward to your feedback.
