Health secretary Nicola Sturgeon has come under renewed pressure to hold a public inquiry into faulty breast implants.
Campaigners from the PIP Implants Scotland group met Ms Sturgeon at Holyrood to call for a full investigation into the use of non-medical grade silicone by Scottish clinics.
The implants, made by French company Poly Implant Prothese, were only used once by the NHS in Scotland, but around 4,000 women may have had them fitted by private companies.
They were filled with non-medical grade silicone intended for use in mattresses and have been linked to rupturing and swelling in the body.
Campaign spokeswoman Trisha Devine said today's talks had been "productive" but she was disappointed by the outcome.
She said: "We've been campaigning tirelessly and prepared a very strong case for an independent, transparent and comprehensive public inquiry into this scandal.
"We're disappointed that Nicola Sturgeon has not committed the Scottish Government to a full public inquiry into the issue, but today's discussion was productive. We look forward to continuing our conversation with the Health Secretary in the coming weeks."
Ms Devine, who was accompanied by Labour MSPs Jackie Baillie and Malcolm Chisholm, said she wanted to meet First Minister Alex Salmond to discuss the issue.
The 34-year-old paid private health company Transform Medical Group £4000 in 2004 for her cosmetic implants.
She said: "We have been through hell ever since we found out there are dangerous implants inside us. It's been a long and stressful struggle to get our voices heard at the Scottish Parliament. We stated our position and hope we're finally getting somewhere.
Around 47,000 women across the UK are believed to have been given the implants. The NHS has said it will remove them only if there is a clinical need.
Patrick McGuire, a partner at Thompsons Solicitors which is offering free legal advice to people caught up in the scandal, joined the campaigners at Holyrood.
He said: "We are very disappointed with the outcome of today's meeting. Our message however is clear: we believe that the legal case for a public inquiry is absolutely clear and we believe the moral case is utterly unanswerable."
