How do I prevent french toast from deflating after I take it off the pan?

Depending on how much egg you are using in your mixture, and whether you bake or fry your French toast, sometimes the custard mixture puffs up (smaller version of a souffle) while baking.
When you take it off the heat there will be, as Phil says, some deflation.

I think you are going to get some deflation. What bread are you using? It needs to be spongy but sturdy, 3/4 - 1" thick. Is it cooked through? if it is too soggy it will sag. Make sure the pan is hot before you put the toast on it.
