Pectus excavatum and flared ribs

So I'm 16 and I have PE with flared rib cage. I'm afraid of taking off my shirt in public or even in school because I don't want anybody to see my chest and laugh/stare at me. I'm going to gym and I hopelessly hope to build some muscles and try to cover up my ugly chest , any suggestion on how to deal with this condition (without surgery).

Surgery is the only full option
