Can I have breast implant surgery with an ongoing (minor) pericardial effusion?

I was about to book a breast enlargement for next month but then remembered I have an ongoing pericardial effusion, there are no symptoms and its small, I'm taking no medication for it, only getting ultrasounds every few months.

Note: I got his pericardial effusion after I had a cyst removed surgically in November, developed an infection and then doctors discovered I had that in my heart. I'm 27 (woman) and have no other conditions, my blood pressure is fine and am taking no medication atm
