Any options for finger injury and guitar playing?

A long time ago I injured the tip of my left hand's middle finger (I'm right handed) with a blood blister that healed with a scar.It's really only an issue with playing guitar, causing a dull pain which persists after playing for an hour.
At first it didn't bother me much but over the years it's gotten worse to the point where I don't play acoustic any more because of the increased string tension (whether or not that is good thing is another question - ha)
I'm thinking there might be some kind of skin resurfacing or plastic surgery that might replace the scar with natural tissue?
