In brief: No

Gynecomastia is hormonally-active breast tissue in a man.
Since breast tissue consists of mostly fat, losing weight will cause a reduction in the size of any breast tissue, either in a man or a woman; however, the enlarged breast tissue will still remain.

In brief: Probably.

Gynecomastia is occasionally confused with pseudo- gynecomastia which is primarily fatty deposits that could go away with losing weight.
Even real gynecomastia can be decreased with losing weight...

In brief: Usually not

Most men still have breast tissue in spite of weight loss.
Many young men have a mild case of gynecomastia, with only puffy nipples. Others have a more serious case. Most require surgery for correction, even mild puffy nipples. See my webinar on youtube - search dr. George pope. Or visit www.Gynecomastia.Org, a great forum.
