Gynecomastia and loose skin?
Congrats on your weight loss and body transformation. You look great. Keep up the good work. In terms of your chest, I do see some loose skin. In the photos where you are flexing your pectoralis muscles, I see proof that you should have your skin addressed. Liposuction and some body sculpting may be in order, but skin incisions and a chest lift would give you your best result. I urge you to have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. I hope this helps...
Difficult problem that requires an expert
How should I choose a surgeon?
Choose carefully. The decision is yours. Advice to assist in making your selection.Only a board certified plastic surgeon
1. Experience matters. Choosing a surgeon increases the likelihood that they have seen a case similar to yours in the past. Selecting a surgeon whose practice is focused on gynecomastia exclusively is also an indicator of experience.
2. Results matter. The more before-and-after pictures, the better. Pay attention whether the surgeon is confident enough to show multiple angles of the same patient.
3.Only gynecomastia Reviews matter.
4. Expertise matters. Is your surgeon recognized by the profession as an authority in the field? Have they authored books or medical journal articles regarding your surgery?
Be realistic about your expectations. Also, revision surgery tends to be significantly more difficult than initial surgery.So be extremely careful choosing the right Plastic Surgeon at the beginning.

Gynecomastia in Loss of Weight and Skin Elasticity
Man Boobs(Gynecomastia) VS. Loose Chest Skin
In my opinion you do not appear to have Gynecomastia but it is clear that you have residual loose skin. Even though the huge increase in your pec muscles filled up and took some of the slack left by the weight loss it was not entirely successful. Look at the very low position of your nipples and compare it to that of normal make chests and that of body builders. Ideally the nipples sit on it just to the side of the edge of the pectoralis muscle. Yours are much lower.
If you are satisfied with this location I would do nothing since to lift the nipples may require a fairly long scar on either breast to help in removing the excess skin and lift the nipple.
