What exactly do you mean with "trim the enlarged tables"?

This looks like either your free_space_map setting is way to low, or you
have index bloat.
Maybe a VACUUM FULL fullowed by a REINDEX will have solved your problem.
It also might make sense to issue a CLUSTER instead (which combines the
effects of VACUUM FULL, REINDEX and physically reordering the data).
When the free_space_map is to low, VACUUM ANALYZE should have told you
via a warning (at least, if your logging is set appropriately).
