Congratulations on your weight loss! You have done the right thing by going to see multiple plastic surgeons and getting different opinions. They have the benefit of having examined you, so I would trust their judgement over somebody who hasn't met you. From the pictures, it does appear that an extended abdominoplasty with a vertical scar component would give you the best trunk shape. Regarding the gynecomastia, you will either likely undergo an anchor scar pattern, or perhaps just a donut scar around the areola (may need to be repeated a couple times), but a physical exam would be necessary to make this determination. Congratulations again, and best of luck!

Best outcome for your surgery
Healthy male patients with excess breast tissue or unwanted breast development who have no underlying breast disease.Men who desire improved physical and aesthetic appearance should have realistic expectations based on their condition and the procedure performed. You should meet with a board certified plastic surgeon to be able to get a formal diagnosis and to be able to decide on a course of treatment if necessary.

Not only will this decrease risks of complications, but will also enhance the aesthetic results. Further, normal body weight is different from one patient to another.
