I am using Andrew Stacey's package for drawing cobordisms (see this question), and I have two questions.

Firstly, how can I achieve a drawing such as the one below? To be precise, how would I go about creating a fat cobordism, where some of the incoming and outgoing missing boundary pieces, i.e. not drawn but implied by vertical dots?

enter image description here

Secondly, how do I get rid of the extraspace below the reverse pair of pants? it affects the parantheses

    \node[draw, tqft, reverse pair of pants, boundary lower style={draw,dashed}] (A) {};
    \node[tqft boundary circle,draw] at (A.outgoing boundary 1) {};

Close enough...

    p\left\{\vphantom{\vrule height80pt}\right.
    \begin{tikzpicture}[baseline=57pt,ultra thick,red]
            cobordism height=70pt,boundary separation=30pt,
            cobordism edge/.style={draw},
            incoming boundary 2/.style={dotted},
            incoming upper boundary component 2/.style={dotted},
            incoming lower boundary component 2/.style={dotted},
            incoming boundary 3/.style={dotted},
            between outgoing 2 and 3/.style={dotted},
            outgoing upper boundary component 2/.style={dotted},
            outgoing lower boundary component 2/.style={dotted},
            between outgoing 1 and 2/.style={dotted},
            incoming boundary components=5,
            outgoing boundary components=4,offset=.5,
            every upper boundary component/.style={draw},
            every lower boundary component/.style={draw,thin},
            hole 1/.style={rotate=-90,shift={(0pt,130pt)}},
            hole 2/.style={rotate=-90,shift={(-20pt,100pt)}},
            hole 3/.style={rotate=-90,shift={(-60pt,60pt)}},]{};
