    I dont think it will be picked up.

    Just ring your surgery and they will know for sure

    I think they ask you to strip off and post you through the baggage x-ray machine.

    According to a lady at work who now has a titanium neck, it doesn't set of the detectors, so in the unlikley event you do, I'm sure once they run a wand over you and see where it's coming from, coupled with the scarring, you'll be free to pass through.

    shouldn't go off.
    the metal used is normally kevla (or something like that) and isn't detected by the machines.

    As in the Fabric..??

    My dad has a false leg and he always sets them off, its quite funny watching actually.

    They will pull you to one side and search you with a little metal detector wand. At this point you can explain you have a plate in your leg. They will also carry out a finger tip search i think the terminiolgy is.

    You will also depending upon where you may have to take your shoes off and put them through a scanner.

    Hope this helps

    Just read that now due to more security checks being taken place in airports, any people with medical plates/items in place of their body have to actually prove it, and are then stripsearched in the back room to ensure that its actually a real device and not a hidden bomb or similar.
