Removed fiberglass tub/shower insert from second story bathroom and want to convert to walk-in shower versus another tub/shower. The problem is the 1-1/2" drain pipes.

If you want to convert a tub/shower to a walk-in shower, can you extend the bottom 1-1/2" drain to the middle of the proposed shower and lower the existing overflow drain on the wall to just below the height of the new shower dam versus trying to convert all the 1-1/2" drain pipe to 2"? Wouldn't this provide just as much drainage as the tub? i.e. It would drain like a very shallow tub.
