Is there any way to import back figures that you initially exported from MATLAB?

I have used the "Copy Figure" on several plots I made on MATLAB and pasted it into Microsoft Word. I have accidentally deleted the .mat files of my plots, and if possible would like to import it back to MATLAB.
Is there any possible methods to do this?

Unfortunately, your figure was converted to a rasterised image when you pasted it in Microsoft Word - this process is irreversible. If you're patient and have no other options, it is possible to approximately reconstruct the data from the image using e.g. g3data.
