What I am suggesting may not be the ideal solution. But it works for me.

1. Convert the figure to an EPS file. 
2. Include in your parent file with \includegraphics{figure.eps} in the
   \begin{figure} - \end{figure} environment.
3. Scale the figure to desired size using \scalebox; raise or lower it, 
   if need be, using \raisebox with positive or negative units.
4. Put some negative space below or above your \includegraphics command.
