Would Zeliq help me? Or anything? The beach is totally out of course.

Sure there's hope for you.  You need surgery to get your gynecomastia corrected.  That's all. 

By the way, welcome to gynecomatia.org!

Would the surgery completely remove these so I actually looked like a guy for once? Or would they just be a tiny bit smaller?

You need to see a surgeon who does the surgery. As you can tell by many of the photographs you can have a masculine chest through the surgery. Seeing several plastic surgeons and seeing before and afters (many have a photo book to look through, mine did) will help you pick the doc who is right for you.  Yes you can get the results you want and most have payment plans or medical "credit cards" with payment available. I'm paying mine off at $100 a month with 0 interest the first full year!  Worth every penny to remove the feminine look of my breasts!  So glad to be on the other side!  Welcome to the site! ;D

That pic reminds me of my chest before I lost weight.

They will be removed, but that's not to say there won't be some scarring in certain individuals.  With severe gyne, where the skin has lost major elasticity, more elaborate procedures are sometimes necessary and these procedures can leave more scarring than cases which are not as severe. 

Scars can fade, however.  Your boobs won't.  The ONLY way to deal with the situation is via surgery from a reputable, board certified plastic surgeon who has a wealth of experience in gynecomastia surgery.  You should try to get as close to your recommended weight range as possible before considering this type of surgery.  And then go for it.  You'll wish you had done it years ago, in all probability. 

A little scarring is more than a fair trade-off for being free of a life-long, embarrassing problem.  

Good luck.
