Is it just astigmatism?

I had lymphangioma since 2008 until 2012 when I had surgery to have it taken out. The lymphangioma sat right underneath my left eye and a little bit behind my left eye. The pressure of it on my eye gave me astigmatism and caused my left eye to be just a bit more forward than the right eye and when I smile, the little fat that appears underneath my eyes is larger on my left eye. I have also been wearing corrective glasses to help with the astigmatism. I was wondering, is my left eye being a bit more forward just astigmatism or is it a side effect from having lymphangioma on my left eye? Will it go back down to where it was before? do I need to continue wearing corrective glasses for it to return to where it was?
