Can someone have sleeve gastrectomy surgery after lap band?

I had lap band surgery three years ago but am now thinking I want sleeve gastrectomy surgery. I think it’s also known as gastric sleeve surgery. From what I understand it’s irreversible but it tends to produce better results and more weight loss than a lap band. Is this true and would someone like me who already has a lap band be able to have the procedure?

Yes this is possible but you'd have to see a bariatric surgeon, not a plastic surgeon.
