It's impossible to comment on your specific situation without photos.  If you have gynecomastia, the surgery to correct it is called "subcutaneous mastectomy," so that's most likely what you need to resolve your problem.

Again, without seeing your condition, I can't address you specifically. Normally the scars are imperceptible.  My goal for my patients is that they are comfortable going shirtless anywhere.
