A lap band would be redundant [over done].
Since the stomach is already bypassed; however, what then would be done is called a lap band revision, in which the bypass is revised into a lap band procedure. So the answer is yes, it can be, and is done. Bariatric specialist consider this an improvement and a continuance toward weight loss goals for patients. This is the specialist you would need to see.
