It sort of tapers off into a small space before the neck.

I should have included a before picture, I virtually created no crease-lines and popped out only 15% of the dent. I was gentle enough and put a soft towel between the jack and the panel. Surprisingly, being able to control the speed of the pressure applied ensured I did not bend the metal outwards.

I've yet to find out if these whole quarterpanels come off or not?

Thanks for your advice, I may try the suction cup method once more considering the dent has a little more flatness to it. Or am I missing something?

EDIT: I should add that most of the creases you may see is the clearcoat coming off the car.
find the center of the dent and pull from there, on a very hazy and questionable night i put a dent twice as big as yours with my ass on the car of a friend and he pulled it out using a suction cup or at least i remember it that way.
