How soon after blepheroplasty should you judge results?

I had a blepheroplasty one week ago exactly. My eyelids are so red and the shape of my eyes is much smaller than before. I am assuming there could be swelling that causes my eyes to appear smaller and a different shape. There is some pain when I look upwards and to the side. I went to a very reputable surgeon and chose him because he is known for a natural look. Could someone please tell me when I should expect to see my real results? I was told there was barely down time with this procedure. I am in my mid 40s. I also had corrugator muscle reduction.. Thanks!
