image impossible?

I volunteer for opr.... they are about to call this photo a non restore...I have seen some amazing talent in this forum, I was wondering if anyone had the skills or talent to make this a usable photo?

Re: image impossible?

Dropped on a new background. A Solid color fill. Rasterized it to fill content then added a slight vignette. The major imperfections on the skin I used plain old dust and scratches then went over it with cloning and healing and dodge/burn. Evened out the skin tone with a solid color with the color setting then lowered the opacity to about 50%.
Finally added some grain to the shot to hide some of the imperfections.

Again this is just working with a small jpeg. If this was needed to go to print 8x10 or larger then a lot more work would have to be put into it
