Yes. A planer basically takes whatever the bottom surface looks like and makes the top surface look the same. If the bottom surface is flat, the top will be flat. If it’s bent like a banana, it will still be bent like a banana, just thinner. If it’s wedge shaped, it will make the top parallel to the base.

Drum sander does the same thing, but much slower.
