If your doctor performs dilation, it is reasonable to expect that the narrowed area will be expanded. Dilation can provide a significant improvement in swallowing and regurgitation.
Dilation usually has good short-term results, however, the long-term success will depend on your particular situation. It is common for dilated areas to become narrow again and require another procedure.
