I am 33 and have suffered with gynocomastia since puberty. Can estrogen blockers reduce breast tissue or just prevent it? I was big, am now 5'10" 152#

In brief: Unlikely

It would be important to make sure your doctor has excluded certain medication effects or disorders as a cause.
It is also important to eliminate the contribution of excess weight to the process. If you have done both, residual tissue, especially if it is true breast tissue would need surgical removal. Estrogen blockers won't do it.
