If, after having a gastric bypass, I decide that it's too restrictive and I want the option of the Lap Band, can this be changed?

Gastric bypass conversion to Lap-Band?
The gastric bypass surgery is considered a permanent operation and is very difficult to reverse. We do offer the option of placing a Lap-Band over the gastric bypass in patients that stretch out their pouch and need more restriction.
