In brief: Surgery Helpful.

Assuming a young man has achieved a long-term stable weight and there are no “causative agents” involved, surgery may be indicated to treat persistent gynecomastia.
It is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue, then liposuction surgery.

In brief: Conservative

Gynecomastia is likely to resolve spontaneously, so observation is appropriate.
If obesity is part of the problem, weight loss willl help, bu redundant skin may be the residual problem that needs surgical intervention.
