UV maps and mesh editing question

Im new to maya and I was just wondering if I would be able to change the mesh after UVing the whole thing. I always seem to have trouble with rigging shoulders and usually have to add a few edge loops to make animating look smoother on game characters.

Adding edge loops won't affect your uv map, aside from adding extra uvs where you add edge loops. But if you change vertex position your uv map won't compensate, causing texture stretching/squishing. Sometimes this is negligible, depending on the magnitude of the change.
