Liposuction of other areas with Gynecomastia
Along with treatment of gynecomastia, many patient choose to have other parts of their body addressed. Most commonly liposuction of the the abdomen and waist. This should be discussed with your surgeon ahead of time since it is usually considered an additional procedure and will require more time time and usually additional fees.

It is unclear to me from the information you've provided, which medication you are taking or what degree of weight loss you may need.
Liposuction is not appropriate for whole body weight loss, but for contouring and reducing smaller, problem spots/. Fat can be removed from thighs and abdomen as well as breasts through Liposuction, and glandular breast tissue is often removed as well in Gynecomastia cases. I recommend that you discuss your surgical plan in detail with your Plastic Surgeon so that you can be sure what to expect from your procedure.
