May be a problem: Regular pubertal onset gynecomastia usually fades within the first year.Persistence after 3 years is likely to improve only with surgery. I would check with your pcp about local options & seek out a consultation. Removal of residual breast tissue and any supportive fat cells is usually done by a plastic surgeon.
