The processes required to fully assimilate a Borg may be similar to say, Egyptian mummification processes.
Borg nanoprobes may be the first step in assimilation, but adding the implants, removing organs, and getting people into the armor suit would be a process that could take days.
From what I recall, some of the early drawings of the Borg Queen also had her wearing a Nefertiti-like crown.

Also, the Borg may also want to make the full recovery of a Liberated Borg difficult to impossible without these organs, making them either completely dependant on the Collective for survival or making them dependant on additional implants after liberation..
