I really cannot see what you are concerned about by the photo. If you've had a septoplasty then you do not have a keloid because there is no skin within the nasal cavity. The skin extends for about 8-10 mm along the columella intranasally. You may have some protruding cartilage or mucosal swelling which would be best determined by examination.
