Yes & no: It can be a permanent cure for the retinal detachment, however always at increased risk of it re-detaching. You should keep in mind symptoms to look for like those discussed by your retina specialist. Some are decreased vision, flashing lights, increased floaters etc. Consult with your retina specialist for further education.
