Can a car accident affect the lymphatic drainage/membranes/tear trough ligament in the eyes? (Photo)

8 months after a car accident I still have bags of fat and fluid deposits under my eyes that started right after the accident (worst in the morning). I had none till the accident. The ophthalmologist believes it's not related and suggest surgery. If I take that path in terms of the insurance claim it would be nice to find that connection. The before photo was taken Dec last year 2 weeks before the accident. Thank you
