Two young mothers and their sons underwent surgery in China's first paired liver donations on Friday, but the eventual results of the transplants will not be known until about a week later.

Beijing's General Hospital of Armed Police Forces completed taking parts of the livers of Luo Dan, 23, and Yin Chunlin, 22, by about 7 pm. The transplants were finished at about midnight.

The two mothers were transferred to the intensive care unit after the surgeries.

Li Wei, a surgeon who took part in the surgeries, told China Central Television: "The mothers' surgeries went very smoothly. They will regain consciousness in four to six hours after the surgery if there are no complications. They probably can check out of the hospital within a week.

"Their livers will grow back to their original sizes in about two months," Li added
