Consult with a Board Certified Surgeon to Better Determine
According to official statistics, 36% of adult young men and 57% of older #adult men in the United States have this medical condition in one of the four grades. About 200,000 to 3 million cases of #gynecomastia are being reported every single year. So if you have #breast #enlargement and you feel you're an exception, please understand that 1 in 3 young adult #men and 1 in 2 older adult men are just like you and have breast enlargement.
There are three types of surgical treatment options available that treat gynecomastia. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will recommend the type best suited for you. The most important decision to be made before performing any surgical procedure is determining whether you are an ideal candidate. Weight, and more specifically body mass index (BMI), need to be considered when deciding.
Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon is highly suggested in order to determine if you are a surgery candidate and what treatments are best for you.
Do I Have Gynecomastia?
It appears that you do have Gynecomastia and also some extra fat deposition. Surgery is the only real option to shape your chest. The Glands usually do not come back, unless you gain massive amount of weight, the improvement should be stable. Please make an appointment with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can evaluate you and suggest treatment options.

Do I Have Gynecomastia?
Thanks for the post and the photos. Based on the photos it does appear that you have gynecomastia. I recommend that you be evaluated by a plastic surgeon experienced in gynecomastia surgery. You should undergo a detailed history and physical to make sure there are no underlying causes that would need to be addressed. If you do have excess breast tissue there is no other treatment other than surgery that would address this.
