I am in excellent health however, I have alot of metal plates implanted in several areas of my body for fracture repairs. Some of metal plates can be removed, I just haven't had enough incentive to do anything about them. Do these plates pose any kind of a health risk over time?

Even stainless steel is not pure and leeches various heavy metals into the body. The short answer is: yes.
