A non-invasive Sculptra® Butt Lift adds volume, texture and subtle contour to the buttocks, effectively restoring elasticity and firmness. During the procedure, Dr. Delgado utilizes Sculptra®, an FDA-approved volumizer typically purposed for rejuvenating the facial region. His gentle hand, precision and experience will help restore and improve the appearance of your buttocks, without the risks associated with surgery.


Procedure What It Does Surgery Recovery Results
Non-surgical Butt Lift Adds volume and addresses lax skin No None Up to 2 years
Surgical Butt Lift Tightens and lifts by removing excess skin and fat deposits Yes 10-14 days Permanent, long-lasting



Sculptra® Butt Lift is an innovative procedure where we utilize poly-L-lactic acid to enhance lax skin and depleted features on the buttocks. After a series of micro-injections, the formulation is naturally absorbed by your body, and helps stimulate collagen growth and create thicker skin. Dr. Delgado is one of the only plastic surgeons in the San Francisco area trained to administer Sculptra®. He understands how frustrating it can be to obtain a desirable figure via exercise and diet and passionately helps patients with this non-invasive butt lift procedure.


  • Enhanced results lasting up to three years
  • No recovery time required
  • Subtly and safely replaces lost volume
  • Non-surgical method to enhance saggy, flat buttocks


We have performed many successful Butt Lift procedures utilizing Sculptra®. The safe injectable works to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen, a vital block of protein which creates firm, youthful skin. We can add shape and balance to your form, providing you with a more symmetrical frame. Sculptra® adds definition, natural curves and firmness to the buttocks and hips when administered by an experienced surgeon. The number of sessions you receive depends on the results you’d like to achieve, and Dr. Delgado will help determine your treatment plan.

Comfortable chairs


If you’re healthy and would like firmer and more voluminous buttocks, you are the ideal candidate for Sculptra®. Dr. Delgado would love to meet with you to discuss your eligibility for a butt augmentation or lift procedure.

Prior to your Sculptra® treatment, our team will apply a numbing agent to promote comfort throughout your session. During the 30 minute procedure, your physician gently administers a series of injections which infuse the dermal collagen stimulator into your target areas.

Patients normally experience visible results gradually after the procedure. Once the Sculptra® is absorbed over the next few weeks, you will start to feel a change in your body. The buttocks will subtly inflate, smooth and begin to lift, improving with each treatment. We recommend several Sculptra® sessions, depending on the results you would like to achieve. Sculptra® side effects are generally mild, but include: swelling, redness, irritation and bruising at the injection site. We recommend a variation of ice packs and mild pain relievers to offset the discomfort.

Sculptra Butt Lift FAQ

Is Sculptra Filler Safe?

Can Any Doctor Preform a Non-Invasive Butt Lift?

Does Sculptra Remove Fat?

Does a Sculptra Butt Lift Hurt?

Am I a Good Candidate for a Sculptra Butt Lift?

Is Sculptra Filler Safe?

Yes. Sculptra® is an FDA-approved filler that can plump the skin. It is generally considered safe for most patients. Individuals with certain allergies or a history of keloid scarring are not good candidates for a Sculptra® butt lift.

Can Any Doctor Preform a Non-Invasive Butt Lift?

No. Only a qualified doctor or healthcare professional who is properly trained in non-surgical techniques should perform the procedure. Dr. Delgado is an expert with Sculptra® and has developed a special procedure to enhance the buttock region, while minimizing the risk of adverse side effects.

Does Sculptra Remove Fat?

No. Sculptra® is designed to enhance volume and lift depleted skin. It encourages the body to produce collagen, a substance that firms skin. For fat removal, other procedures, such as CoolSculpting® and liposuction, are better options.

Does a Sculptra Butt Lift Hurt?

Sculptra® is typically well tolerated by most patients. After an injection, the area may be swollen and tender. These symptoms typically subside within a week or so and can be managed with pain medication.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Sculptra Butt Lift?

If you would like to add volume and firm the buttock area, you may be an ideal candidate. Sculptra® will work best on those with moderately lax skin. If you have experienced significant weight loss and have saggy skin and stubborn fat in the thigh and buttocks, surgery may be a more effective option. Dr. Delgado can determine which butt lift procedure is right for you.
