So I think a little cloning will take care of this - I was going to copy the eyebrow and eye we can see and flip + skew it to get the perspective right, but it's so small and there's so little detail, I just cloned from what we can see. The eyes are just slits, so taking a bit from the center didn't need to be flipped or skewed. I made the eyebrow with the burn tool, set for midtones and about 8% opacity and drew on top of the cloned skin.

This is at 200% so it's easier to see




Two other things. The woman's hair has lost all its shadow, as has her forehead - the hair is creating dappled shadows on her forehead and perhaps that looked like damage, but I don't think it is. I "restored" that by going back to the original.

The baby's left forearm (the part behind the woman) got cloned away, leaving a phantom hand sort of floating out of the bushes :) I cloned from the forearm we can see to make the right sort of shape.
