Good luck: normal.... "ineluctable" is a better term. Breasts are fat and glandular tissue with some small amount of supporting structures. They dynamically change size. The fat can dramatically go up and down but collagen/protein/support structures don't. Deflated balloon. Sorry. Worse is there is no guarantee that putting back the weight puts it there and not just around the belly.

She will be fine with antibiotic. Mastitis can be treated with antibiotic and I & D is only required if abscess develops. Good luck to your mom.
