    No, it's not safe. But neither is driving a car, or walking out your front door. Or staying inside. In fact just being alive seems risky when you think about it. 

    Having said that, breast augmentation when performed in an accredited Australian hospital, by a well trained, qualified surgeon, with a qualified anaesthetist, is made as safe as it can be made. A major part of your initial consultation with a surgeon regarding breast augmentation should be to discuss what the exact risks are, and to help you understand why those risks exist and to decide if you are prepared to accept them.
