The following is a possible approach to append messages in the msgbox after its creation.
% Create a message box
h = msgbox('Hi');
% Set the size of the msgbox to accommodate more lines
set(h,'units','normalized' ,'position', [0.5 0.5 0.2 0.2])
% Find the text in the msgbox using the tag to identify the msgbox
a = findobj(h,'Tag','MessageBox')
% Append lines below
a.String{end+1} = 'Line 1 Added';
a.String{end+1} = 'Line 2 Added';
% Add extra text in the same line
a.String{end} = a.String{end}+" "+ "More text..."
