You should wait at least 3 months before considering further surgery.  Repeat ptosis surgery is not uncommon but you need to give the eyelid time to heal as its height can change over 3 months.  Consult an oculoplastic surgeon.

I think waiting for more surgery until the bruising is gone is a good idea but  a consultation for evaluation and planning surgery can be done now. The repair can tear as the sutures used are quite small.
