While shoulders are masculine, neck is considered feminine. Women are featured in many advertisements and hoardings; their necks are altered to get them noticed.
Neck manipulation came to prominence when women featuring advertisements and hoardings needed an extra bit to get noticed.

Neck extension should be very negotiable in size, as they should match their shoulder sizes naturally.
The editor has to recreate a small portion of the neck by copying the content of the neck portion that already exists. The neck is elongated to an extent by morphing. The editor will place the recreated part of the neck in the gap formed while elongation. Now, as an end product, the neck looks elegant and more feminine.
