Seek a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Please be advised that each patient is unique and previous results are not a guarantee for individual outcomes. As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. With any surgical procedure, there are some risks which your doctor will discuss with you during your consultation.

Thanks for the post and photos. It does appear that you have gynecomastia based on the photo. I recommend that you see a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in gynecomastia surgery. You'll need to be evaluated for the cause to make sure there is no underlying, untreated cause prior to having surgery. That being said, you will need to have surgery to remove the excess glandular tissue. There is no medication or supplement that will predictably and accurately reduce the glandular tissue. The fear of indentation should be low with an experienced surgeon. Do not hesitate to travel for surgery if you cannot find a local surgeon.
You should get a nice improvement with gynecomastia breast reduction
surgery. As others have stated, go with a board certified PS. it is possible but not likely,
that you will have significant indentation after surgery. Also it is possible to alter the
size of your areolas. I, will often do that in the office, a few months after the initial
surgery to reduce the size of the breasts.

Candidate for Gynecomastia removal
Healthy male patients with excess breast tissue or unwanted breast development who have no underlying breast disease.Men who desire improved physical and aesthetic appearance should have realistic expectations based on their condition and the procedure performed
Gynecomastia surgery is a highly customized procedure
In pseudo gynecomastia, the underlying problem is the excess fat which can be removed with a use of liposuction cannula inserted through small incisions that heal into imperceptible scars.
Meanwhile, a "true" gynecomastia will always need direct skin excisions to remove the excess breast tissue and possibly some skin. For an additional amount of contouring, this might be combined with liposuction.
Regardless of the surgical technique, it is imperative not to overdo things--or remove too much tissue or fat--to avoid nipple collapse, asymmetric appearance, skin irregularities, and other telltale signs of the surgery.
I hope that helps and good luck.
