Surgery is the only option
Gynecomastia Concern at Age 20
The most common and popular #treatment for #gynecomastia patients is the removal of the excess breast tissue with surgery. The appropriate treatments are recommended by a plastic surgeon. They are determined on the severity of gynecomastia and the patient’s individual health issues.

Gynaecomastia or Pseudogynaecomastia??
It is difficult to know from the photos you have provided whether you have true or pseudogynaecomastia. The former is due to increased female hormones or increased sensitivity to female hormones though in many cases the cause is unknown. The latter is due to increased fat cells in the body (Which also influence hormone levels).
If you have pseudogynaecomastia, then weight loss may help.
I hope that is useful.
