Try using drawnow with the figure command in your button callbacks (see this post)

That explains it. You need to use the second solution from that post:
"For releases prior either turn the visibility off and on again or use the attached p file (change extension from .zip to .p). The usage then would be"
uigetfile; % Could be other dialogs here

FocusUIFigure is a custom function that is attached to the post I linked you to. You'll have to download it in order to use it.
