Carrie L. Morris, MD
When it comes to dynamic female role models, Carrie Morris hit the jackpot. “My mother and grandmother were both self-made women who were also selfless, kind, humble, and strong,” she said. “I hope I am half the wife, mother, friend, and woman they were.” When Carrie was seven, God it laid on her heart to become a physician.
A nationally recognized plastic surgeon specializing in the eyelids, face, and neck, Dr. Morris brings a uniquely feminine perspective to her practice. Perhaps her patients say it best, in their online reviews where they describe Dr. Morris as “an excellent listener and meticulous surgeon”, “gentle and kind”, “down to earth and caring”, and “dedicated to her profession and to her patient”. One patient said, “Dr. Morris took her time to understand what I wanted, then discussed fully my options. I’m so happy with my results.” Another added, “Dr. Morris and her awesome staff really care for their patients and work miracles.” And yet another, “Dr. Morris has a real passion and genuinely cares about her patients and her practice.”
One patient wrote, “In this troubled world it’s refreshing to find someone who still has the time to be kind. (Dr. Morris’) kindness and caring play such a big part in lifting the spirit and touching the heart of (her) patients.” Another wrote, “Our community is very lucky to have a plastic surgeon with the God given talent, credentials, and experience Dr. Carrie Morris has achieved. Every service she has provided me has been spot-on and delivered with her unique caring, compassionate, and personal touch. She’s awesome!”
Dr. Morris is a top cosmetic and plastic surgeon who is triple board certified in eyelid and facial plastic surgery.

Dr. Morris and her medical staff provide a feminine approach matched with customized care.
Dr. Morris has been practicing for thirteen years, five of which have been in our Southlake community. She provides excellence in a full scope of oculofacial plastic surgery and cosmetic laser surgery including laser liposuction and CO2 laser resurfacing. One patient wrote, “I usually do not write reviews, but Dr. Morris’ professionalism in diagnosing and especially her delicate nature during surgery provided the best outcome possible. I was so impressed I even recommended her to my primary care physician so they are aware we have someone with her capabilities nearby and can recommend to their patients. The results are picture perfect.”
