In brief: Unusual

Most retinal detachments are preceded by a vitreous detachment.
There are some exception, however those are uncommon or rare. As such, it is unlikely to have a vitreous detachment following retinal re-attachment surgery. If there was no vitreous detachment prior to retina re-detachment surgeyr, and no vitrectomy was done, a vitreous detachment could occur with it's risks.
