I'm now 5 months post implant.I have gained back some of what I lost.
  I have a question from someone who has had the implant for awhile. I am going on a trip and was wondering if this thing will set off the bells at airport security ?

welcome to the Forum. One of the implant guys will probably be along soon to answer your question. I don't know that I have ever heard that there was any metal in any form in the implant, so it is doubtful that it is detectable.
