I would recommend a professional data recovery company if your data is important. TechRx, Inc. (http://techrxgb.com) offers free estimates.
Basically, if you do try to recover; YOU MUST NOT recover it to the same drive. You run the risk of causing significant damage to the file system; then, your recovery will be impossible.

The Mac and the windows file system are different. So if you
will connect a Mac file system formatted hard drive to a windows system then it
may occur. To retrieve your data from your MAC hard drive you have to connect
the drive to a Mac system.
Check the cables of the hard drive or replace them. You can
try to connect with another port of the mother board. If the Bios don't detect
your hard drive then check the bios settings. If the bios detects your hard
drive but you can't access it then try to repair the OS to retrieve your data.

The theory to unformat a Mac hard disk is, when you format a Mac HFS+/HFSX Volume or format a external hard disk, the data are not really wiped. Format process just marked your Mac hard disk as available to reuse, no matter it is quick format or complete format. So if you put if you fill in a mount of new data to your hard drive, then the formatted data are overwritten, your will permanently lose your formatted data.
