You can see the most of the areas have been recovered; just a little portion of the picture is left behind. So it’s extremely critical area and removed by the Clone Stamp Tool.
So pick up the tool and zoom in your picture maximum for easiest and clean work. Now hold the Alt key and do click on the perfect area, clone this area at the damage places.
Step 4: Reduce the Noise With Surface Blur
When you will keenly observe you will see the noise grains on the photo so eliminate them. Now go to Filter -> Surface Blur and keep the Radius 3 pixels and Threshold level 10 in a new window. You will see the photo will become little bit blur and the Noise has been removed.
Step 5: Save Final Picture in PNG
In the end save the final photo in PNG image format. For this purpose, you must go File -> Save or press command Ctrl + S. Give the file name and extension PNG in a new window and click on Save button. Finally.

Removed the unwanted spots and damaged points. Went to Filter -> Blur -> Surface Blur and set the values. The photo has been smoothed and noised free.
