That fix is not permanent. In fact, not even a reball with leaded solder is permanent, albeit it's the longest-lasting solution.
This method is basically just forcing the motherboard to warp so that the broken solder joints under the GPU touch.
A reflow of the GPU is a way better fix. Most people charge $35-40 for this on craigslist. Make sure they use a real reflow station with a real preheater and not a heatgun with electric griddle.
