Is it common to have red incisions and gel implant flattened 9 months post op? Do my breasts look within normal range? (photo)

A gel implant cannot get deflated unless it is ruptured. Even then, it typically doesn't look deflated like a saline implant will. Your pocket can certainly change with time due to positional pressure, like sleeping on it, or due to capsular contracture. Scars that are rasied and red are normal during the healing process and those should improve.
