In brief: Nearly immediately
The eyes should be relatively straight immediately following muscle surgery.
Depending on the specific surgery as well as the patient's pre-operative condition, the eyes may not be able to be completely aligned, or may take longer to straighten.

In brief: Soon
It depends on the extent of your muscle surgery, but your eyes should appear relatively straight soon after the surgery, and then will continue to improve over the course of a few weeks.
Speak to your strabismus surgeon for further details.
