In brief: Surgery Helpful.

Gynecomastia, if persistent, 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 liposculpture surgery alone may suffice. For patients with excess skin, common after weight loss, skin excision may also be necesary.

In brief: Surgery

Gynecomastia can be from various causes.
It is important to discern its etiology. For most cases, gynecomastia can be effectively treated by surgery, most commonly via liposuction. Liposuction will be effective in removing the fatty breast. At times, there is tissue typically around the areola that may not be amenable to liposuction which can be surgically excised concurrently with liposuction.

In brief: See plastic surgeon

Gynecomastia is fairly frequent and the cause is most often unknown, a combination of ultrasonic and conventional liposuction with direct excision of glandular tissue can be a very effective treatment with minimal scarring.
You should be within about 10-15 lbs of your ideal weight before considering this. See a surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgeons to discuss your options.
