What is the expected recovery time for eyelid basal cell?

In brief: Fairly short

I am guessing you had a portion of the lid removed containing the basal cell cancer.
The lid heals rapidly after this type of surgery - with stitch removal in 6 days or so and rapid disappearance of the appearance of the suture line by 3-4 weeks.
