It is a common operation for dress pant, but what about jeans?
It's not impossible, but it's not as easy as altering dress pants. You need a tailor with the right heavy-duty sewing machine, and you need to watch out about where the back pockets end up.
This topic comes up from time to time. Some members have had darts put in above the back pockets with varying success. That's a much easier operation than trying to redo the rear seam.
Dress pants are made to be easily altered eg. centre back waistband seam (sometimes), darts.
Jeans are difficult to alter for waist size. You have a chain stitched waistband to alter and re-stitch, fell seamed yoke/crotch....not worth it IMO.
It could go pear-shaped, literally, pretty easily.
