You have gynecomastia.

Th way is a combination of push-ups so you spread the fat apart and cardio (running).
You need calorie control as well.

Surgery is also vital, they will cut out a section inside the pectoral which is responsible for the moob.
I have arranged for a consultation with a private clinic. Tbh I have already lost a lot of weight since the start of this year and there have been no changes in my chest area at all

No worries. Neither running nor strength training is optimal for losing fat on its own. Also, there's no such thing as spot fat reduction. Training your chest will firm the area but won't magically make the fat dissapear

When I say 'metabolic resistance training', all I mean is training your muscles in a way that makes you out of breath and in doing so, burn fat and builds muscle at the same time

The best individual home exercises in my opinion include:

Burpees
Kettlebell swings (literally my favourite exercise of all time)
Mountain climbers
Skater jumps

As you have probably realised, these are all exercises that train your muscles AND make you out of breath. They burn crazy calories, especially when combined in a circuit. You can find more online.

The best training methods are

Circuit training
AMRAP (as many reps as you can)
Tabata (20 sec effort, 10 sec rest,)
Cardio boxing/Le Mills Bodycombat and other similar fitness classes (can be found online in video form)

An ultra simple workout I use myself is to do a 3 exercise circuit, performing as many rounds as I can in 30 minutes. Each round is 30 seconds with 5 seconds of rest in between:

30 sec: pressups
5 sec: rest
30 sec: crunches
5 sec: rest
30 sec: jump squats
5 sec: rest
REPEAT

You can modify it to a tabata format if this is too intense. I like to use variations for each exercise. On it's own, this isn't very balanced. It ignores the posterior chain and lats which could lead to postural problems. I realise fat burning is your priority but you should take care not injure yourself or mess up you muscle balance. Tits will be the least of your concerns. I suggest you do this:

15 minutes of the above circuit, 20 on, 10 off (replace jump squats with kettlebell goblin squats if you wish)
5 minutes of kettlebell swings
5 minutes of bent over kettlebell rows (2.5 min per arm) to balance out pec and shoulder development

I covered all 5 basic muscle groups in 25 minutes and designed the workout to be simple, doable at home and require as little equipment as possible (1 kettlebell, highly recommend you invest in one). You could spend an extra 5-10 minutes doing other things i.e. training you biceps, calves, more reps, jump rope etc. Just don't workout for longer than 35 minutes as you'll burn yourself out and risk elevating your cortisol which would lower your testosterone and further aggravate your affliction. Don't forget to warm up first and stretch afterwards.

I'm spitballing but I guaruntee you you'll get results from this. If you still have moobs, at least you'll be super fit . This is just to start you off, I suggest you read around online and consider doing follow along routines on Youtube
And yeah, it goes without saying but you have true gyno, no amount of fatloss will rectify it as you will literally have a pair of breasts as opposed to fat deposits. It may reduce the size of surrounding fat deposits but you'll still have 'lumps'

I’m going to get a consultation at a private clinic to see what my options are, but I’ll certainly take up your suggested routine to get fitter. I’ve already got a couple of kettlebells that I used earlier in the year but since I saw no change in my chest I became demotivated. I’m beginning to think that surgery may be my only option

I would certainly run it all past your GP first, before you do anything drastic; especially if you're going to be handing over potentially thousands of pounds.

If you're going to go the private route, you'd be wise to order bloods separately in advance. Any chop shop will fix you up, but you'll need some sort of idea of why you had them in the first place and how to stop them coming back again.

Please don't take this the wrong way as I'm only offering advice, but judging from the photos you seem quite unfit. I wouldn't recommend doing anything drastic such as surgery yet as there is a possibility that it is just fat, which you can easily lose with some determination. Definitely see a doctor an ask about it, but I'd say your priority is to maintain a calorie deficit until you lose all the excess fat. Just make sure you're burning more calories than you're consuming, and you'll lose it quickly. I recommend running as it's one of the best ways to burn calories, and it will generally make you more fit. 2-3 chest work outs a week as well would also help to shape your chest.

I’ve already lost a lot of weight this year, but I appreciate I’m not the fittest. I just feel that surgery would rid me of them once and for all and rid me of so much stress

The clinic I’ve chosen is certified, but of course I’ll visit my GP first

I’m actually in the exact same position. 20 years old, uni in September and 99.9% certain I have gynecomastia. My only concern is that I will have scars, and considering I’m in pretty poor shape, how much lipo/any fat loss I’d need to do in order to get in proper shape.

It’s reassuring to hear that there are others in similar positions. Have you been to a consultation at a surgery? I’m certain I have gynecomastia too, but If it is mostly fat then they’ll be able to remove it with liposuction which is not very intrusive and has a quick recovery time

How fast do you think I’ll see results going through with your exercise plan? Thanks a lot🙂

It's got nothing to do with your weight or diet, or exercise. You clearly have gynecomastia which is when real breast tissue, not fat grows in the chest. It happens in pretty much all infants (very minor) and again affects many people when they're a teen which is why most young teens that are even a little chubby will probably have moobs but they usually self resolve.

I'm your GP has already told you this, there are some drugs that people say work but surgery is ideal especially once its firmed up. Surgery is your only choice, sadly it's not available on the NHS, the stats are terrible, you basically have a 5% chance of getting funded by the NHS for it. If you do want surgery, do your research on a good GP, tell him your getting real bad pains, it bleeds and goes tender, you can't get a job because people laugh at you or because you struggle with too much pain, its mentally affecting you, etc. And you should get surgery in 6-12 months.

The NHS will only give surgery if theres a medical case, not a cosmetic case. Going private will set you back a few ££££'s

Surgery actually removes the breast glands, everyone has breast glands, male or female just different amounts and different sizes. After gynecomastia removal, if done correctly, I don't think its possible to come back since the tissue/glands are gone and dont usually grow back. also many will perform liposuction at the same time for a little extra, that will remove fat cells which means fat can't be deposited in that area again.

There’s no way that exercising will resolve it? Even if I get down to a really low fat percentage?

You would literally need to starve yourself to the point that your body starts using any part of fat or muscle to energise itself from. And that’s seriously unhealthy

Well the next appointment this clinic has is in late October so maybe I’ll try somewhere else in considering taking another gap year to resolve this as I’ve left it too late to do before ubi
