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.

Best,
