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.

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.

San Francisco, CA is home to many famous hotels including the Palace Hotel, a member of the Historic Hotels of America. The original hotel was built in 1875 and at the time was the largest hotel in the western U.S. During the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, it caught fire and underwent substantial damage. It was completely demolished and rebuilt before re-opening in 1909 where it has since been host to many historical events including President Woodrow Wilson’s luncheon to support the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. It was also the location of President Warren G. Harding’s death. The Palace Hotel is located just a half mile from the practice of Dr. Miguel Delgado in the Union Square district and 28 miles from Dr. Delgado’s offices in Novato, Marin County.

One of San Francisco’s most recognizable locations is the Palace Hotel, an elegant hotel rebuilt in 1909 after the original building was destroyed in the San Francisco earthquake. The Palace Hotel is partly famous for its Garden Court Restaurant, also called the Palm Court. One of San Francisco’s most sophisticated dining rooms, it’s most well-known for its signature tea service and Sunday brunch.

The city of San Francisco, CA is located on the San Francisco Peninsula, a strip of land that separates the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. Although the city of San Francisco sits on the very northern end of the peninsula, it’s also home to other cities like Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, and Los Altos, as well as the famous Silicon Valley. Before the San Francisco Peninsula was quickly settled during the 1849 California Gold Rush, it was occupied by Spanish missionaries. Dr. Miguel Delgado’s offices are located in the northeastern region of San Francisco in the Union Square district, just one and a half miles from the shore of the San Francisco Bay and 28 miles from Dr. Delgado’s secondary location in Novato, Marin County.

Although San Francisco is the most well-known city located in the San Francisco Bay Area, it actually contains 14 counties that make up the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland, CA Combined Statistical Area. It’s overseen by a collaborative effort called the Association of Bay Area Governments and is home to approximately 7.75 million people, making it the fifth most populous combined statistical area in the United States and the 41st largest urban area in the world. Archaeological evidence has shown signs of settlement as early as 10,000 BCE, although the city of San Francisco first began when Spanish missionaries came to the area in the late 1700s before expanding with the California Gold Rush of 1849. The practice of Dr. Miguel Delgado is located in the Union Square district of San Francisco, just four and a half miles from the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and 28 miles from Dr. Delgado’s secondary Marin County location in Novato.

Because of the California Gold Rush of 1849, San Francisco remains one of the foremost financial and banking centers on the west coast, earning its name as the Wall Street of the West. San Francisco’s Financial District is home to the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, the former Pacific Coast Stock Exchange, and the corporate headquarters for Wells Fargo. Additionally, a variety of multinational banks, venture capital firms, and large financial institutions are headquartered in San Francisco. Today, San Francisco is also known as a center for tech, medical research, and biotechnology. According to census statistics, among all U.S. cities with over 100,000 residents, San Francisco ranks 1st in per capita income at $133,856.

It includes the University of California, San Francisco which is the only campus dedicated to graduate health and biomedical sciences education. It’s ranked among the top five medical schools in the United States and is associated with the UCSF Medical Center, the top-ranked hospital in California. Additionally, San Francisco is home to major colleges like San Francisco State University and the University of San Francisco.

One of San Francisco’s most iconic features is its historic cable car system. Established in the late 1800s, only three lines remain of the original 23. It has undergone reconstruction and refurbishing multiple times in its history, most recently between 2017 and 2019. Two routes still exist downtown in the Union Square district and a third route runs along California Street. The San Francisco cable car system is more popular as a tourist attraction rather than being used by local commuters – it’s also listed on the National Register of Historic Places and as a National Historic Landmark. The San Francisco Cable Car Museum, located on Washington Street, is dedicated to its history. The offices of Dr. Miguel Delgado are located in the Union Square district, just two blocks from the California Street cable car route.

San Francisco’s skyline is easily recognizable due to the Transamerica Pyramid, a 48-story skyscraper in the Financial District. It’s the second tallest building in San Francisco behind the Salesforce Tower. The Transamerica Building formerly held the headquarters of the Transamerica Corporation before it relocated – now, it’s a popular tourist site. It was completed in 1972 and (at the time) was the eighth tallest building in the world. At its base is a small privately-owned park containing redwood trees transplanted from the Santa Cruz Mountains. Most notably, it was constructed over the remains of the whaling vessel Niantic from the 1849 California Gold Rush. The Transamerica Pyramid is located one mile from the practice of Dr. Miguel Delgado and 27 miles from Dr. Delgado’s secondary offices in Novato, Marin County.

San Francisco’s very northern tip is occupied by the Presidio of San Francisco, a large park and former U.S. Army post. It was first fortified in 1776 by Spanish settlers and passed to the United States in 1848. In 1989 the United States ended its active military presence on the Presidio before transferring it to the National Park Service. It’s now a National Historic Landmark and contains many recreational and sightseeing opportunities. There are also several museums including Fort Point and the Walt Disney Family Museum. Above the Presidio is the base of the Golden Gate Bridge, one of San Francisco’s most iconic landmarks. The Presidio of San Francisco is located four miles from the San Francisco offices of Dr. Miguel Delgado and 24 miles from Dr. Delgado’s offices in Novato, Marin County.

San Francisco’s first known occupants were the Ohlone people before they encountered Spanish explorers led by Don Gaspar de Portolá in 1769. Soon after, Spanish missionaries arrived and founded Mission Dolores and the Presidio of San Francisco. As it passed to Mexican rule, San Francisco became a center of coastal trade with privatized agricultural development in the form of ranchos. Finally, in 1849, the discovery of gold brought on the California Gold Rush which more than doubled the population of San Francisco within a short amount of time. Since then, San Francisco has been a major urban center in California except for substantial damage sustained by the San Francisco earthquake in 1906. San Francisco is home to Dr. Miguel Delgado, a board-certified plastic surgeon located in the Union Square district as well as 28 miles north in Novato, Marin County.
