Is this considered fixing my hanging columella? My surgery was done 9 days ago, I just got my stitches out 3 days ago

Final Result in Six Months
It is too early to tell the change you will experience. I do see an improvement in the hanging columella, but whether or not this is your final result will not be known for at least six months.
I hope this has been helpful.

You still have a great deal of swelling and changes may still occur for the better with time. You should discuss these concerns with your surgeon. I would wait at least 6 months, preferably 12 before I would consider further revisions. Reducing the amount of columellar show is certainly achievable by addressing the caudal septum and perhaps your ala as well. More would be known in person after some additional time has passed. Good luck!
Rhinoplasty results too early to tell
A few days after rhinoplasty is too early to see "final" results. You still have a large amount of swelling throughout the nose, including the columella. Overall, at this point , it is a nice change.
