In brief: Quick healing
If you are referring to cosmetic lid surgery or blepharoplasty, healing is very rapid: the skin is very thin and the blood supply is excellent.

In brief: Short recovery
Eyelid surgery patients generally recover quickly.
Mild swelling and some light bruising may occur. Sutures are generally removed in less than a week.

In brief: Bruising & swelling
The eyelids will be swollen and bruised for 1-3 weeks.
This is usually worse the day after surgery. The incisions can be itchy as they heal and there may be some pain in the first 48 hours.
