There appears to be a combination of fat, skin, and likely breast tissue. An exam can easily sort this out. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of body contouring procedures and male breast reductions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Findings typical of gynecomastia
Your photos suggest increased breast volume and skin typically found with gynecomastia. Surgical reduction would require a plan that addresses the excess skin. This maybe by way of liposuction with anticipated skin contraction if your skin tone is good or by means of direct skin excision. I would be wise to seek out an experienced plastic surgeon to better understand your surgical options and risks associated with each treatment choice.
