No, applying ice 9 days after is not going to help swelling at this point. Time, elevation is all that is needed for the swelling to go down.

No need to ice
No need to ice at this point. You still have some inflammation due to the procedure which will cause the swelling. Just give it some time to resolve.
Swelling from inflammation usually peaks in the first 24-72 hours. Because of this, the ice is unlikely to be of particular benefit beyond this period. Eating a low-salt diet and keeping your head elevated may help to hasten your recovery. Good luck.
