Won't Tailoring Suit Jacket Slimmer Affect Pockets?

I'm planning on bringing my suit jacket to a tailor to have it taken in. Just looking at the jacket and wondering where the tailor could even cut to make it slimmer, I'm wondering if it's going to affect the pocket and pocket flaps on the jacket?

I usually need significant tapering in the waist and I've never noticed any issue after the tailoring. I say go ahead worry free.

They don't take anything in around the pockets or vents, typically. Taking in the waist means from the belt-line up toward the armpits.
