In brief: Varies

Liver transplant life expectancy depends on the type of liver disease someone has prior to transplant.
Such as, for hepatitis c 5 years life expectancy is around 70%. For other type of liver diseases it is more. Best life expectancy is seen with someone with primary biiliary cirrhosis.
