Raising the lintel over the garage door

I am closing in a patio door and garage door with different heights on the same wall. I'm adding a 32 inch door in the garage opening. Since I had to raise the floor, I have only 77 in height for the door. I think that I would need a mason to raise the lintel up 2 courses to match the height over the patio door. This will give the openings a symmetry look. Before doing this, I need to know if it's possible to actually raise the framing of the door. Who do I get to do this? Do I need a Carpenter or will a Mason handle all of this? This is a 2 story house and the wall in load bearing.
