Shadow removal help?!

Can't figure out how to get the shadow off of the face without making a mess!
Would anyone be able to help/give some tips?

Here's the link:-

Some patch tool, cloning & color correcting the fixed area...... it's a little soft on the repaired neck area.....worked fast.

Re: Shadow removal help?!

I hope you don't mind I had a go at it. I flipped the image horizontal and then used a difference blend mode in free transform to line up the teeth. Then I masked in that area of the chin. Reset blend mode and transferred some hair from the other side. Then I decided to go ahead and play with the WB. Granted I'm still a noob at this but since I don't shoot people I like to jump into these and see if I can do it..
Below are my layer stack and final edit:

Here is my try.

I copied the lower rt. jaw and flipped over to match and blend with the subjects left jaw. Did some unsharpen mask and desaturated the picture some.

I used the Mixer brush tool on the chin.
You could use it on more parts if you wanted.

Made a rough selection of shadow, refined it then used selective colour to alter the shadow. Shoulder still needs some work.
