Crameri said that there were no surprises, despite concerns the girls' bowel may have been conjoined.

"We have been able to remove their breathing tubes so they are breathing independently and that was a very important step after the operation", Crameri said.

Nima and Dawa had grown facing each other, and could not sit down together.

It states that 18-member surgical team of RCH specialists will undertake a long, two-staged process to separate the sisters in the RCH's Theatre 6, the hospital's largest operating space.

As the public eagerly waits for good news, the Royal Children's Hospital is not expected to release any information about the progress of the operation until 4pm on Friday, with Dr Crameri to give his first update on the girls early on Saturday morning.

'We saw two young girls who were very ready for their surgery, who were able to cope very well with the surgery and are now in our recovery doing very well, ' Dr Crameri said.

The girls, who were born attached at the torso, shared a liver.

The family was brought to Australia from Bhutan by Children First Foundation, an Australian-based charity.

Before the operation, their mother was "a little bit scared" but "very pleased" that the time to split up her daughters had finally arrived, according to spokesperson for the charity that funded the twins' flight to Australia and their surgery.

Their mother Bhumchu Zangmo was understandably nervous before the operation, but spent today praying and meditating at a Buddhist temple. She tends to ... always be on the top, pulling rank, as we say, and Dawa's more placid, ' she said.

If so it would also be divided, he said, and "our challenge will be to reconstruct their abdominal walls to close it over".

"She still has this extraordinary calmness about her, which is just awesome".

Conjoined Bhutanese twins have been successfully separated at Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital, in Australia after a six hour operation.

They were separated after a marathon 27-hour surgery, despite doctors initially giving them only a 25% chance of making it.

It is expected the girls will spend about a month in hospital following the surgery and Sherub previously told The Age that they may take time to catch up with some of their milestones.
