GalaFLEX Surgical Scaffold Logo

A biologically derived scaffold for plastic and reconstructive surgery that supports, elevates and reinforces soft tissue.[1]

GalaFLEX Surgical Scaffold made with P4HB

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

Biologically derived - leaf icon

Biologically Derived

Produced by a safe biological fermentation process, standard in pharmaceutical production [12,17]

Monofilament surgical scaffold - icon


Designed to minimize risk of infection and encourage a natural healing response [3,15]

Strong icon


Provides a lattice for new tissue ingrowth and regeneration resulting in tissue 3-4x stronger than native tissue [9,16,19]

Bioresorbable icon


Naturally broken down to CO2 and H2O and bioresorption is essentially complete by 18-24 months [1,12]

Indications for Use galaflex-image

GalaFLEX surgical scaffold is indicated for use as a bioresorbable scaffold for soft tissue support and to repair, elevate, and reinforce deficiencies where weakness or voids exist that require the addition of material to obtain the desired surgical outcome. This includes reinforcement of soft tissue in plastic and reconstructive surgery, and general soft tissue reconstruction. Galatea scaffold is also indicated for the repair of fascial defects that require the addition of a reinforcing or bridging material to obtain the desired surgical result.
