I am a male; I had this done during vaser surgery. I am not happy with the results and wish I never did this. Is there any way to revers these results?
Removing fat injected into Pec muscle
It is possible to remove the fat to make you more symmetrical but it needs to be physically removed which is complicated by the fact that fat is in your pecs. This is not an easy problem to fix. Sorry! Visit with a board certified plastic surgeon.
Reversal of fat injections to the breast
liposuction may help, but some of the fat cells may be so small and buried in the muscle that it will be difficult to remove with liposuction. swelling is very common after fat injections in the breasts and the liposuction to remove it can also cause a lot of swelling. Corticosteroids might present a significant health risk, and its effectiveness in reducing fat is in question.

In sculpting the male pecs, fat is injected into the fibers of the pectoralis major muscle. This would make the removal of that fat near impossible. It can not be liposuctioned and to open it to try to remove the fat would create a large incision and may not be able to remove the fat completely.
You need to see a BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON (AMERICAN BOARD OF PLASTIC SURGERY) for proper diagnosis of the problems and what could be done if any.
some times if the problem is irrigularities, it can be hidden with fat graft to the subcutaneous plane.
contour irrigularities and nipple position are more difficult.

Fat Transfer to Pecs "Buyer's Remorse"
Reversing fat grafting is much harder than the original operation because the fat is placed in string-like "structural" fashion in many different planes. This is particularly so in the male chest where fat placed inside the pectoralis muscle is impossible to retrieve. Attempting to do so involves blind trauma to the muscle with prolonged swelling, bleeding and muscle weakness and scarring.
The other factor to consider is that the removal or attempted removal may be associated with a worse deformity than your perceived deformity now.
Ask your Plastic surgeon what he suggests. I would start there.
