In brief: Yes

People have sometimes had lap bands after gastric bypass with good success.
Check with your doctor to see if you are a good candidate. Good luck.

In brief: Sometimes

There are some surgeons who are placing bands over a sleeve or a bypass but it is somewhat controversial.
Talk to your surgeon to see if you are a candidate.
