How long do bruises last after upper eyelid surgery?

Tags:woman age 45-54 upper eyelids recovery bruising

My upper eyelid surgery is scheduled for the end of this month, and I'm getting excited... but scared. I've seen pictures of people who had a blepharoplasty and they had a lot of bruising around their eyelids. I gotta say it looks horrible but I know that I can't really avoid it. How long will I look like that? When does bruising go down?
