"But they all agreed that I would still need lipo to my belly even if I got a tummy tuck for a good result because she left so much fat there." "My procedures were a TT and BBL, I had a wonderful experience followed by great results, I would suggest Dr. Hardway to any and every one!" "Michelle Hardaway and her staff are awesome."

5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants

Absolutely the Best! - Farmington, MI

I gave Dr.Hardaway and her staff all fives in every category because they met my expectation everytime. If for one second I was beginning to feel nervous, doubtful or unsure of my decision somone(staff) would say or do the smallest gesture or offer more detailed information and that would put my mind at ease further reassuring me that I was making the right choice, choicing the best doctor and in good hands. I initially shopped around for doctors that performed BA using the TUBA method. I was disappointed when I was informed Dr.Hardaway did not use this method but I decided to schedule a consultation with her anyways. My decision was influenced by the fact that she was a certified plastic surgeon, genaral surgeon and was African American. I wanted a doctor that could understand the fact that my scars tend to heal hypertrophically. I needed a doctor that would know how to address and be proactive in dealing with that issue head on and know what to do to prevent or resolve the issue if it happened. I wasn't interested at the time in having a inframmary incision I was quiet sold on TUBA but after consulting with Dr.Hardaway, her knowledge ,insight and experince educated me on the pros and cons of different incision methods, the procedure and things to consider before and after the surgery. I have no regrets with my choice to have a BA. I am honored to say Dr.Hardaway was my surgeon! My hat goes off to Dr.Hardaway and ALL of her staff. They are a magnificent group of people and it is obvious they work cohesively as a team!

What a Blessing I Chose Dr. Hardaway - Farmington Hills, MI

After taking 2 1/2 years to lose 140 pounds, I had a lot of extra skin around my abdomen that was really bothering me. At 44, I didn't know how much my skin wold bounce back. I never thought I'd consider cosmetic surgery, but after seeing Dr. Hardaway's photos and meeting her (I interviewed about 14 surgeons before settling on her) I decided to go for it and I'm so glad I did. Surgery was drama free, I always felt taken care of, and the professionalism and high degree of care I received never wavered. Even a year after my surgery, as I deal with a small issue that prevented the final result from looking as I hoped it would look (and I should mention this is about how my body is healing - not at all about anything Dr. Hardaway did or didn't do), Dr. Hardaway is still seeing me, making sure I'm happy wit the result. I don't regret the surgery or Dr. Hardawy as my choice for one second - best thing I ever did! She is the best and if I had the money, I'd go back to her for about 3 or 4 more things!

Phenomenal - Farmington, MI

I was extremely satisified with my results from Dr. Hardaway. Each office visit was great, the staff is outstanding. I had devoloped a hematoma after surgery and Dr. Hardaway was amazing.. she got me right into the hospital to perform an additional surgery. The staff would frequently call and check on me.. it made me feel great knowing they were concerned about my recovery. I would reccommend Dr. Hardaway to everyone seeking cosmetic surgery.

Dr.Hardaway is fantastic! She answered all my questions and is very thorough in everything.

Juvederm in my Lips Was One of the Best Decisions EVER! - Farmington Hills, MI

I've been wanting to get my lips filled for a while. My lips were thin, and my jawline was strong, so I always used lipliner to make my lips fuller and even out my jaw/lips. The problem I had was that the liner would wear off after a while, and would leave me looking foolish. I decided to "take the plunge", I looked up surgeons in my area (I was told to ALWAYS go to a board certified...

Can't Wait for my TT! - Southfield, MI

I'm super excited about getting my TT and lipo. I'm 21 years old, 5'4 170lbs. I've been overweight my whole life. In high school I tipped the scale at 205 and lost a big chunk of weight and got down to 130, but of course keeping weight off is extremely difficult to do and over 3 years I gained some weight back here and there. I've been staying at the weight I am now for 2...
